This book is a great aid for me as a collector. The drawings and text about uniform details are great.

Also the text is interesting, but it is important to have a bit of knowledge on the subject and read it with a critical eye.

Already on page 3 appears a piece of obviously false information, probably based on the propaganda of the time, but absurd to any who has any knowledge of the political groups involved. In short it is stated that the anarchists, who actually hate government and representation of any kind, supported Caballero in an attempt to impose a Stalin-type Communist government. This is presented as truth, no questions are asked, no uncertainties discussed.

So, though the book is useful it should be read with a critical eye.

Really first rate drawings of the SCW. I am a Falange reenactor, and this book is really helpful at visuallizing what the uniforms looked like. Could it have been better yes. every books needs more. but all in all a good guide to help. I really liked the drawing of the Falange shock trooper.

if you are looking for a Spanish civil war book that explains history look to a bigger book, as you will not know anything on any SCW book by page three

As always for Osprey the color plates are wonderful, but it's a shockingly bad book when it comes to the facts of the Spanish Civil War.

I bought this edition for the subject material. The Spanish Civil War is generally not as well-known as the World Wars, and I was interested in a bit of background information. This series of books is brief, but usually provides an adequate summary of the campaigns, leaders and forces involved. The color illustrations are often the highlight of the books, as they show detail in uniforms and insignia,etc. I've come to the realization that the Osprey series seem a bit overpriced in terms of information, they often cost up to $20 a piece, and I have several now. They could easily be appropriate for middle-school libraries in terms of reading level.

For a superficial review of the convoluted Spanish Revolution of 1936 to 1939, I'd recommend "The Spanish Civil Way 1936-39." This forty-page book hints at the political machinations and the military campaigns of this ghastly revolution. Much of the text and illustrations focus on the myriad uniforms of the officers and soldiers involved. We need understand that this monograph was not intended to be the definitive work on the Spanish Revolution. Rather is more of a Cliff-note type publication.

GOOD LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR THAT SERVED AS PROLOGE FOR WORLD WAR II. EASY TO READ, IT GRABS YOUR INTEREST FROM THE FIRST PAGE; ONLY WISH THE AUTHOR HAD INCLUDED MORE ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL BRIGADES THAT SERVED ALONG WITH THE REPUBLICAN FORCES.
