The Spanish Civil War 1936-1939 by Frances Lannon this is a short volume in the Osprey essential history series. There are illustrations maps and photos on basically every page. Most of the narrative is taken up with a discussion of the political machinations of both sides. There is a strategic overview and some short biographies of "average" participants. I would have preferred more on the actual nuts and bolts of fighting. This does hit the high points.
