Synopses & Reviews
Jorge M.Revertes new book offers a fresh analysis of the strategic way in which the Nationalists and the Republicans fought the Spanish Civil War. Applying the traditional theory of the Art of War to the conflict, Reverte examines the methods, ideology, and results of the strategic, operational, and tactical methods employed by both factions in Spain from 1936 to 1939. Drawing on both the massive historiography of the war as well as extensive examination of primary sources, including military archives, this book is a welcome addition to the literature on the Spanish Civil War.
