THE BATTLE FOR SPAIN - Antony Beevor
If it wasn't for the death and tragedy the Spanish Civil War was a over long Monty Python sketch.
It was farcical with the splinter groups, all with their own agenda's.
There were groups that were genuine and weren't taking instructions from foreign government but this was rare, just amazing.
This is a very good over view if a tad dry with the facts just hammering you.
What does astound that Franco held power until 1975;,the entire world interferes in each others business but Franco was allowed to carry on for 36 years.
Not a light read but if you need a bit of education or lot of education on the Spanish Civil Way like myself, this is a good place to start.
