Abstract:

"The last major Republican offensive of the Spanish Civil War, the Battle of the Ebro was a vitally important episode in the Spanish conflict and, although ultimately a Republican defeat, it proved a severe setback for the Nationalist forces under General Francesco Franco. According to many historians it extended the war for an extra year. Ultimately however, it was probably the death knell of the Republic; their armies lost vast amounts of men and materials and they were left incapable of defending their remaining territory effectively. The consequences for Europe on the eve of World War II were immense."--Jacket.
