Paul Preston 's The Spanish Holocaust, is the most illuminating study I have seen of the complex, modern conflict that observers of Spain today still find difficult to understand. Anyone wanting to know modern Spain will read with great interest, this brilliant, well-informed analysis. --John Brademas, author of "Anarcosindicalismo y revoluci n en Espa a, 1930-37"

Magisterial account... it is bound to be an essential reference for anything written on the subject for years to come. --Adam Hochschild"
A harrowing and moving account of the immense terror and enormous atrocities, especially perpetrated by General Franco's followers, during and after the Spanish Civil War, meticulously researched and superbly written by an outstanding historian. --Ian Kershaw"
Paul Preston is the outstanding scholar of Spain's Civil War, and The Spanish Holocaust, is unquestionably his opus magnus. For the first time, the horror of the Spanish conflict has been placed in its appropriate historical context. As documented by Preston in this moving, brilliantly rendered account, Spain was not only the scene-setter for World War Two, but also the proving ground for the campaigns of mass-murder that became its ghastly hallmark. A deeply important, powerful work of history. --Jon Lee Anderson"
What Preston knows about the years of civil war, 1936-1939, is astounding Preston s work is a powerful intervention in a Spanish discussion. It s significance transcends the events it brings to light, and suggests some basic re-evaluations of recent European history. --Thomas Snyder"
Fascinating... Unflinchingly, Preston sifts through the pillage, torture, and mass executions of this bleak chapter in Spanish history. "
Monumental study... [The Spanish Holocaust] directly links Spain s Nationalists to the Nazi regime, stressing that Franco s reign of terror, like that of Hitler and Goebbels, was carefully planned and systematically executed.... The Spanish Holocaust draws on Preston s vast research, as well as scores of recent historical studies, to establish the most accurate possible estimates of numbers of Spanish victims statistics that, ever since the outbreak of the war, have been notoriously subject to manipulation and distortion.... [Preston] has produced an indispensable, important book. --Sebastiaan Faber"
