Downloaded this book from Kindle for a five hour trip to Barcelona. Carrying out a little research for my own book on the Spanish Civil War and this one seemed to fit the bill. Finished the book in my hotel room on the same day, a 'one dayer,' in my eyes worthy of five stars. Captured the moment perfectly and loved the historical content and the way the author skillfully took the reader back to Spain's darkest days and left just a little hint that they could easily be ressurected. Great plot, well researched book and written with an obvious passion for my adopted homeland. Hoping to read more of the same very soon.
