Figuring in America's imagination largely as the place noble young men went to fight, the Spanish civil war was a particularly dark and bloody moment in European history. Perhaps the (English-speaking) authority on the subject, London School of Economics professor Preston offers a detailed account of the terror that reigned in Franco's Spain. Not as much coverage as there should be on this crucially important issue, so take a good look.
