Arms for Spain : the untold story of the Spanish Civil War by Gerald Howson( Book )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The victory of fascism in Spain in 1936 set the stage for World War II. As Gerald Howson argues in this startling and compelling new look at the Spanish Civil War, that victory was ensured by the non-fascist European powers. When military officers and rich landowners rebelled against the left-wing Spanish government in 1936, the Spanish Republic found itself abandoned by other European nations. Hoping to prevent the escalation of the conflict into a world war, European leaders created an international arms embargo against Spain. Through a unique combination of exhaustive research, forensic skills, and technical expertise on armaments, Gerald Howson establishes that the arms embargo played a much greater part in the Republic's defeat than is usually acknowledged. - Jacket flap
Burgoyne of Saratoga : a biography by Gerald Howson( Book )

4 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"General John Burgoyne (24 February 1722 4 August 1792) was a British army officer, politician and dramatist. He first saw action during the Seven Years' War when he participated in several battles, mostly notably during the Portugal Campaign of 1762. Burgoyne is best known for his role in the American War of Independence. During the Saratoga campaign he surrendered his army of 5,000 men to the American troops on October 17, 1777. Appointed to command a force designated to capture Albany and end the rebellion, Burgoyne advanced from Canada but soon found himself surrounded and outnumbered. He fought two battles at Saratoga, but was forced to open negotiations with Horatio Gates. Although he agreed to a convention, on 17 October 1777, which would allow his troops to return home, this was subsequently revoked and his men were made prisoners. Burgoyne faced criticism when he returned to Britain, and never held another active command."--Wikipedia
Thief-Taker General: the rise and fall of Jonathan Wild by Gerald Howson( Book )

7 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gunpowder and incense : the Catholic Church and the Spanish Civil War by Hilario M Raguer Suñer( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now available in English for the first time, "Gunpowder and Incense" (translated from the Spanish "La Polvora y el Incienso") chronicles the role of the Church in Spanish politics, looking in particular at the Spanish Civil War. Unlike most books on the subject, Hilari Raguer looks beyond the traditional explanation that the war was primarily a religious struggle. His writing presents an exemplary "insider's" perspective, and is notable for its balance and perception on the role of the Catholic Church before, during and after the War. The material is presented in a lucid, elegant manner - which makes this book as readable as it is historiographically important. It will be vital reading for students and scholars of European, religious and modern history
