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. Here, two of the ablest young historians of modern Spain examine the ill-fated Second Republic (1931-1936) and its tragic aftermath in their full historical background. 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.
