In brilliant, moving detail, Thomas analyzes a devastating conflict in which the hopes, dreams, and dogmas of a century exploded onto the battelfield. Like no other account, the Spanish Civil War dramatically reassembles the events that led European nation to divide against itself, bringing into play the machinations of Franco and Hitler, the bloodshed of Guernica, and the deeply inspiring heroics of those who rallied to the side of democracy. Hugh Swynnerton Thomas, Baron Thomas of Swynnerton (1931-2017) was an English historian, writer and peer in the House of Lords.
