Overview

The Spanish Civil War (July 1936-April 1939) killed several hundred thousand soldiers and civilians and created psychological scars that would take over half a century to heal.

Alongside the military and political dimensions, the book breaks new ground in exploring such themes as the impact of the war on gender relations; the varieties of terrorism; and the role of propaganda.
