    1. It's a bit difficult to evaluate the impacts of the Spanish Civil War from a 21st century perspective because the two contending sides--totalitarian socialism/communism and totalitarian fascism--mostly do not exist in today's political geography. Started as a socialist/communist revolt against a repressive monarchy with a limited parliament (1934-36), the civil war then entered a new phase (1936-39) when the right-leaning (eventually Fascist) military staged a counter-revolution and all-out war [...]

    2. Was reading Ciano's diaries and wanted a good, clear explanation and overview of the Spanish Civil War to provide context for italian actions. This book filled the bill -- very, very clear and well presented. Topical chapters discuss big issues, with overall narrative woven in. Much easier to follow and grasp than another book I picked up at the same time that was mostly a blow-by-blow chronological narrative.One nice advantage -- with 2012 publication, Payne is able to review and discuss evolut [...]

    3. If you have ever wondered how Trump was elected and the parallel how Franco won the Spanish Civil War, this book will provide many insightful answers. The best remedy for myth is fact.I'm a Canadian living in Spain married to a Catalan Independendista and thought I should familiarize myself with the Spanish Civil War (I did my undergrad in history but focused mostly on Central European Middle Ages).I anticipated a good read but I didn't anticipate such an enjoyable read. The book reads like a no [...]

    4. Perhaps the best and far the more accurate book about the spanish civil war. Made me change my mind about many things:1. why the war started, why the republicans could not win even one major city, what happened behind the fron etc

    5. This was an excellent introduction to the Spanish Civil War. Stanley Payne lays out the events, issues, and concepts surrounding this conflict in a clear, analytical style and draws on resources well. Another reviewer described this survey as "cool" and "forensic", and I agree with this observation. Payne's "cool, forensic gaze" has both advantages and disadvantages as I prefer at least a little humanistic passion to color my learning of history. I recognize that I cannot consider myself fully i [...]

    6. This is a good short history of the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939. The author begins with a brief lol at Spanish history from unification under Ferdinand and Isabella to the eve of war and the abdication of the king,Alphonso XIII. The author also traces the great influence of the Catholic Church has played in Spain's history. The book then details the formation of the Republic and the attempts to form a democracy. Why this attempt failed and the forces, both social and political, that led to the [...]
