Críticas:

he has produced a moving masterpiece of the indictment of war. (Felipe Fernandez-Armesto THE TLS)

Fascination lies in the human drama, superbly captured by Beevor... a vivid chronicle of a dreadful time and place. (Max Hastings THE SUNDAY TIMES)

he is also very good on the political manoeuvrings of this most intensely ideological of conflicts. (Andrew Roberts THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

it is an admirably clear-sighted account.... a great achievement. (Miranda France THE DAILY TELEGRAPH)

the story he tells is grimly familiar but he presents it with a freshness, an eye for detail and a degree of detachment that makes this one of the best accounts to date of the Spanish crisis. (Richard Overy THE EVENING STANDARD)

This is an enthralling bok. The narrative is masterly, wonderfully clear as a guide through the labyrinth. It is even-tempered and full of good sense. (Allan Massie THE LITERARY REVIEW)

To appreciate the magnitude of that rapid and extraordinary achievement, do read Antony Beevor's account of the bubbling cauldron of horror from which Spain escaped. (Tom Rosenthal THE DAILY MAIL)

clear prose, peppered with fresh perceptions, especially where strategy, tactics, and soldiers are concerned. (Paul Preston THE TIMES)

Antony Beevor has produced an absorbing re-working of the book he originally wrote in 1982 (Paul Callan THE DAILY EXPRESS)

'It is powerfully brought to life, not only by his practical grasp but by often graphic material found recently in Spanish, German, and particularly, Russian archives. (Jeremy Treglown THE FINANCIAL TIMES)

it's his most impressive book to date beacause he coolly makes sense of such a complicated story: the narrative sweep is consummate, the seamless use of so many sources masterful, and the eye for details makes it a superb read. (Simon Sebag Montefiore THE MAIL ON SUNDAY)

BATTLE FOR SPAIN is this summer's corking military history.... essential if you're going Iberian. (David Sexton THE EVENING STANDARD)

it looks destined to become the definitive popular work on the war. (ROB STOKES SPAIN MAGAZINE)

his characteristically excellent book (Barrie Clement TRIBUNE)

¿For the big picture of the war, all the more powerful for its blending of narrative intensity with emotional restraint, there is no rival to Antony Beevor¿s masterly, THE BATTLE FOR SPAIN¿ (Boyd Tonkin THE INDEPENDENT)

Beevor's account of the war is a valuable work for anyone wishing to understand the complexities and contradictions of modern Spain. (Kim Bielenberg THE IRISH INDEPENDENT)

a brilliant account of the battle for Spain (Dermot Bolger IRISH SUNDAY INDEPENDENT)

essential reading (Raymond Carr THE SPECTATOR)

Reseña del editor:

The civil war that tore Spain apart between 1936 and 1939 and attracted liberals and socialists from across the world to support the cause against Franco was one of the most hard-fought and bitterest conflicts of the 20th century: a war of atrocities and political genocide and a military testing ground before WWII for the Russians, Italians and Germans, whose Condor Legion so notoriously destroyed Guernica.

This was Antony Beevor's first work of non-fiction, pre-dating his international bestselling STALINGRAD and BERLIN: THE DOWNFALL 1945. Now, more than 20 years later, he has substantially rewritten it drawing on masses of newly-discovered material from the Spanish, Russian and German archives. His account narrates the origins of the Civil War and its violent and dramatic course from the coup d'etat in July 1936 through the savage fighting of the next three years which ended in catastrophic defeat for the Republicans in 1939. And he succeeds especially well in unravelling the complex political and regional forces that played such an important part in the origins and history of the war.
