Paul Preston is Principe de Asturias Professor of Iberian History at the LSE, and was head of the International History Department there for several years. He is regarded as the leading historian of twentieth-century Spain now working, especially in Spain itself where he is multiply honoured and holds a state monopoly on the interpretation of that country's modern history.
'A magnificent achievement. Preston combines the skills of the professional historian with a profound understanding of women. Eminently readable, this is narrative history at its best.' Literary Review 'Newcomers to the Spanish conflict could hardly find a better place to start.' Sunday Times On Comrades: 'Paul Preston knows more about the Spanish Civil War than any other Englishman; more, even, than those who fought it. Anyone interested in Spain will want this book.' ALLAN MASSIE, Daily Telegraph On Franco: 'It is difficult to see this marvellous, brilliantly written and surely authoritative biography ever being matched. It is a book any historian would have been proud to have written.' IAN KERSHAW, THES On A Concise History of the Spanish Civil War: 'Paul Preston has an exceptional gift of lucid exposition, clarifying but not over-simplifying political situations often bafflingly complicated.' V. G. KIERNAN
