Editorial Reviews

"Synthesizing the myriad domestic and international tangles of the Spanish Civil War, 1936-39, Felipe Ribeiro de Meneses of the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, largely meets the challenge of Routledge's "Introductions to History" series, which promises "short, clear, self-contained and incisive guides" for the undergraduate reader. De Meneses has clearly attained this goal by assimilating major interpretations of key themes of the conflict and weaving the complexities of the story into an accessible narrative.."-"The Journal of Military History
