Description - The Spanish Civil War by Hugh Thomas
Though more than half a century has passed since the Spanish Civil War began in in 1936, it is still the subject of intense controversy. What was it that roused left wing sympathisers from all over the world to fight for a cause for which their governments would not give active support:? This text presents an objective analysis of a conflict - where fascism and democracy, communism and Christianity, centralism and regionalism were all at stake - and one which was as much an international war as a Spanish one.
