The Battle for Spain: The Spanish Civil War 1936-1939

The Battle for Spain: The Spanish Civil War 1936-1939 - Antony Beevor Beevor, who so brilliantly characterized Stalingrad and the Fall of Berlin, stumbles somewhat with the Spanish Civil War. inherently a war writer, he, as the lead critic on this GR entry makes clear, creates a montage of official political stances without really characterizing what each side is representing. on the whole, a war of ten thousand skirmishes, lacks the majestic sweep of Stalingrad or Berlin, and devolves into some many microbattles that the work as a whole is truly only for the aficionado.
