Abstract:

"The Spanish Civil War: A Military History takes a new, military approach to the conflict that tore Spain apart from 1936 to 1939. While remaining conscious of the politics of the struggle, the book looks at the war as above all a military event. Across nine chapters that consider the war from beginning to endgame, Charles J. Esdaile revisits traditional themes from a new perspective, deconstructs many epics and puts received ideas to the test, while introducing readers to foreign-language historiography that has previously been largely inaccessible to an anglophone audience. This is essential reading for all students of twentieth-century Spain."--Provided by publisher.
