Spanish Civil War: Basic and Essential
MH Lambert "flux1984"
The Spanish Civil War
"Although I dislike his conservative politics and his often-high political narrative, there is no work like it."
The Spanish Labyrinth: An Account of the Social and Political Background of the Spanish Civil War (Canto)
"Brenan really does know what he is on about regarding Spain. Although a little dated by more recent work - no one has come close to understanding the collapse of the Second Republic."
Orwell in Spain (Penguin Modern Classics)
"One of the main reasons everyone knows about the SCW. Well-written and incisive. Sadly I have Homage to Catalonia as well..."
The Spanish Republic at War 1936-1939
"Monumental to say the least! Dense, academic but truly unparalleled. Always my first port of call for picking apart the sometimes complex history."
British Volunteers in the Spanish Civil War: The British Battalion in the International Brigades 1936-1939
"No one is yet to write a genuinely excellent history of the International Brigades as a whole unfortunately (in English). Baxell covers the UK... Very well!"
Revolution and War in Spain, 1931-1939
"Excellent collection of essays covering a variety of topics, edited by the sublime Paul Preston."
Blood Of Spain: An Oral History of the Spanish Civil War
"Not ordered chronologically, and very lengthy but this book is truly superb."
Spanish Revolution (Revolutions in the Modern World.)
"Ealham is correct in saying that all 50000 of his monographs can be condensed into one, or two at most. This is one of his best."
The grand camouflage: The communist conspiracy in the Spanish Civil War
"Pioneering back in the day, a little dated now but informative and passionately argued. A comprehensive read."
The Spanish Civil War: The View from the Left
"Series of essays and articles written by/about Trots in Spain. Partisan but unequalled in terms of material on the non-Socialist/Communists/Anarchist left."
Anarchists in the Spanish Revolution
"Partisan, selective and sometimes tedious, but at least its four times shorter than the official CNT history (which is MUCH better, but more expensive)."
Images of the Spanish Civil War
"All very well reading about it, see what it looked like. Pretty grim to be honest."
Behind the Spanish Barricades: Reports From The Spanish Civil War
"One of the more impressive accounts by journalists (that is actually affordable, in print and in stock!)."
Death's Other Kingdom
"If you thought Madrid was grim, wife of the aforementioned Gerald Brenan, she coined the term "pornography of violence". See why."
A New International History of the Spanish Civil War
"Excellent work on varying degrees of involvement and efforts by both sides and individuals. Alpert's work is always worth a look."
The Forging of a Rebel
"Barea's superb first-hand work combines both the hope, loss and anguish embodied in the war, when he eventually had a breakdown. Lengthy, but insightful."
Republic of Egos: A Social History of the Spanish Civil War
"As my review says, this book requires prior knowledge of the war but is the best thing I have read on it in YEARS."
We Saw Spain Die
"I really enjoyed this, at times War and Peace-esque investigation into journalism and the war. Paul Preston is one of the main reasons I still enjoy reading about the war. Here's another one..."
Britain and the Spanish Civil War
"Alright, it is is not essential but since its a .co.uk list I feel justified. Buchanan's work does have some gaps, but is 110% worth reading."
Womens Voices from the Spanish Civil War
"A collection of short writings by women who experienced the tumult, turmoil and tradegy that was."
Brother Against Brother : Experiences of a British Volunteer in the Spanish Civil War
"Volunteer for Franco. Interesting, if a little military-all-over. Also has an interesting endnote regarding the last days of Sid Hamm. Othen's work on volunteers is also worth a look."
Robert Capa: Heart of Spain: Robert Capa's Photographs of the Spanish Civil War
"Expensive, but an excellent collection, along with the Gerda Taro archives. Heroism and defiance have many faces."
REVOLUTION AND CIVIL WAR IN SPAIN, THE
"My favourite "general history" of the war. Left-leaning and covers the revolution, often language-laden but it really is excellent."
Land And Freedom [DVD] 
"I wonder if they couldn't afford the rights to Homage to Catalonia? Similar story (and to the Wind that Shakes the Barely...) but worth a watch. Along with El Mar... and Pan's Labyrinth."
The Battle for Spain: The Spanish Civil War 1936-1939
"I thought it was alright... not great... but it has put life back into interest in the war so it gets my seal of approval."
