Publisher's Summary

A fresh and acclaimed account of the Spanish Civil War by the best-selling author of Stalingrad and The Fall of Berlin 1945.

To mark the 70th anniversary of the Spanish Civil War's outbreak, Antony Beevor has written a completely updated and revised account of one of the most bitter and hard-fought wars of the 20th century. With new material gleaned from Russian archives and numerous other sources, this brisk and accessible audiobook (Spain's number-one best seller for 12 weeks) provides a balanced and penetrating perspective, explaining the tensions that led to this terrible overture to World War II and affording new insights into the war - its causes, course, and consequences.

    "A most difficult subject"

    Almost all know little or nothing of this epochal event.

    This quite thorough history is not easy, but is essential to one's understanding of this most catastrophic of centuries.

    "Antony Beevor inspirational Historic tell"

    The Battle for Spain gives great details into the causes and effects of the civil war without taking on a preferred side.

    "Fascinating look at the Spanish Civil War"

    I've been vaguely aware of the Spanish Civil War, particularly as a testing ground for tactics and equipment in the lead up to World War 2, but ultimately I knew very little about it. I was completely fascinated by the way the conflict came about and how the alliances within each side shaped the conflict. It really brought home to me the idea that in war there is no white knight, no good guys, just degrees of evil.
