    Interesting Topic but way too biased

    As title suggests, this book takes a very untruthful tack as do most other books dealing with this topic. 20TH century Spain was in fact saved by Franco and his brave followers especially the Carlist Requetes. They rose up to defeat those who were murdering priests and bishops and tearing Spain apart. They rose up to defeat the many forces of evil against Spain: anarchism, atheism, communism, and the criminals who were burning down the churches of God. <BR/>Franco and his government then restored order and peace. It was a miracle. Crime was eradicated. People were free once again to worship. Being ever diligent, Franco then laid the groundwork for a tremendous economic revival in the country. And being always vigilent, Franco paved the way for the restoration of democracy upon his passing. <BR/><BR/>Had it not been for Franco, Spain would have fallen to Stalin and communism. Freedom lovers the world over are deeply indebted to this great and humble man.
