A complex Civil War,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Battle for Spain: The Spanish Civil War 1936-1939 (Kindle Edition)
Having read a number of historical books by Antony Beevor I looked forward to reading this and was not disappointed. Whilst I was aware of the Civil War I did not know the complexities of the political groupings in the build up and who exactly supported who in terms of the Republic and the Loyalists. Hitler and Mussolini were in for Franco up to their necks and Stalin was in for the Republicans, and Beevor gives his usual cool analysis of complex situations.
