5.0 out of 5 stars Well written, highly informative, detailed, hardly a primer July 15 2006
By Jedrury - Published on Amazon.com
This book is titled in Europe as "The Spanish Civil War, Reaction, Revolution & Revenge." Preston has written extensively and authoratively on modern Spain. The Spanish Civil War was as much political as a war fought on the battlefield. Preston defines the principals, the politics, the strategies and mistakes, the defeats and triumphs and the overwhelming tragedy of this war. The English writings on this war are fortunately extensive and from what I can tell well written. Anthony Beevor has a new reprint of his earlier book on the Spanish Civil War which relies in large measure of Preston's three books on this era. A worthy endorsement one might conclude. Preston's biographies of Franco and Juan Carlos, carry on his valuable contribution to modern Spanish history.

It is a well written book with helpful references in the back including a glossary and a list of important figures in the conflict. Exactly what I wanted out of a book about the Spanish Civil War.
3.0 out of 5 stars A little too concise Jan. 18 2013

This slender volume is written by a person who bias is out front, but that bias makes what he writes immediately questionable. This topic, the Spanish Civil War, ought to be well covered but there seem to be very few histories available other than this one on Amazon.
