Nash reexamines the Spanish Civil War from the perspective of the women who fought against Franco and the fascists. She discusses how revolutionary rhetoric and imagery reflected the shift of Spanish women's traditional feminine roles to active homefront heroines, soldiers, and political organizers. Her work is based on extensive research and interviews with women activists during the time, and its balanced treatment equally emphasizes achievements as well as limitations.
