Hugh Thomas authors what’s probably the most balanced and rigorous account on the controversial Spanish Civil War. It’s a very dense and pretty dry one-volume book, but it’s worth reading if you don’t want a simplified version of a very complex conflict, that was not fascism vs democracy as some try to make it look like. Revised with new material, it includes the atrocities committed by both sides. For a shorter and more accessible account, read Payne’s work on the matter.
