American Hispanist Stanley G. Payne presents the complex Spanish Civil War in a concise and easy-to-read manner, unlike more in-depth works like that of Hugh Thomas. Payne analyzes the causes of the conflict (for more on the origins, check out Payne’s Spain’s First Republic), he examines the Spanish Civil War itself and gives a few insights on several controversial issues. Recommended for those who want an overview of the Spanish Civil War!
