Written in elegant and accessible prose, the book charts the most significant events and battles alongside the main players in the tragedy of the Spanish Civil War. Casanova provides answers to some of the pressing questions (such as the roots and extent of anticlerical violence) that have been asked in the 70 years that have passed since the painful defeat of the Second Republic. Casanova offers an overview of recent historiographical shifts; not least the wielding of the conflict to political ends in certain strands of contemporary historiography towards an alarming neo-Francoist revisionism. It is the ideal introduction to the Spanish Civil War. [Publisher]
