This is a good introductory Franco book. I was a bit put off by the slant against Franco by the author, though. Franco remains elusive. I think even King Juan Carlos may not really have known the inner Franco in all the years he was acqaunted with the Caudillo. I recommend this book for it's brevity and conciseness.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
