Wales and the Spanish Civil War by Robert Stradling
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A study of the Welsh people's experience - ideological, political and cultural - of the Spanish Civil War, dealing not only with the war years themselves (1936-39), but also the background and aftermath. The text's emphasis is on analysis rather than narrative history and it seeks to demonstrate the ways in which the meanings of the Spanish Civil War were constructed by both Welsh contemporaries and by subsequent generations. It also provides an exploration of the myths surrounding histories of Welsh volunteer participation. A large proportion of the work is devoted to the volunteers of the Welsh International Brigades, using memoirs, diaries and archival material in addition to existing secondary material in a variety of media.
