Michael Alpert's study of the Spanish Civil War is dedicated to the international aspects of the conflict, and covers the whole era, setting the action in Spain against major events throughout the world of the 1930s. Since the first edition of this book was published, new archival material has become available, and this fully revised edition includes the latest research. This contextual approach to the Spanish Civil War offers new insights into the study of this conflict.
