    1. Αν κάποιος ενδιαφέρεται να μάθει για τον Ισπανικό Εμφύλιο Πόλεμο, αυτό το βίβλιο είναι μια πολύ καλή περίληψή του. Η σκοπία είναι αρκετά αντικειμενική, η γραφή σύντομη και το φωτογραφικό υλικό είναι επίσης πολύ ενδιαφέρον και πλούσιο. Ως πρώτη επαφή με την ιστορία του εν λό [...]

    5. Great book covering the lead up, and development of the Spanish Civil War. The book shows the civilian groups' mindsets, and their efforts to create change, that ultimately drew in other European powers, along with their own ideologies (The USSR, Germany, and to a larger extent, Italy).
