A biography of general and dictator Francisco Franco co-authored by two eminent historians. The biography is balanced and treats all the facets of Franco: the personal, military and political facets. This biography covers the early and family life of Franco, how he rose to prominence within the Spanish Army, how he (eventually) became the leader of the Nationalist uprising and how he consolidated a dictatorship that lasted until his death in 1975. A book that will appeal to anyone interested in Franco’s personality and regime, the Spanish Civil War or even to a broader audience.
