From the Publisher:
To mark the 70th anniversary of the Spanish Civil War, this classic history from bestselling author Antony Beevor (The Fall of Berlin 1945, Stalingrad) has been completely revised and updated. THE BATTLE FOR SPAIN is a compelling account of one of the most hard-fought and bitter wars of the twentieth century: a war of atrocities and political genocide that was a military testing ground before the Second World War for the Russians, Italians, and Germans. With his thorough and contemporary examination of the Spanish civil war, historian Antony Beevor unravels the complex events from the coup d'etat which started the war in July of 1936 to the final defeat of the Republicans in 1939. This highly readable account leaves out none of the familiar aspects, exploring them with a clear eye and providing important new insights into the war-its causes, course, and consequences.
