Stalin and the Spanish Civil War
by Daniel Kowalsky
Publisher: Columbia University Press 2004
Number of pages: 525

In the six decades since the Nationalist victory, the gradual declassification of hundreds of thousands of documents associated with the war has increased, not diminished, the intensity of scholarly debate on many issues surrounding the Iberian struggle.
