"The anthology sheds light on important aspects of modern Spanish history that have until now received little attention, and the analyses of its contributors are often interesting and astute. It thus has much to offer historians of modern Spain and of civilian wartime culture and ideologies." -Geoffrey Jensen, Virginia Military Institute, The Journal of Military History "...a very useful collection for specialists." --Nathanael Greene, Wesleyan University, History: Review of New Books
