The Battle For Spain

Good review of Anthony Beevor's 'Battle For Spain' over at the LondonBookReview.com site. Beevor's book is interesting to the extent that it exposes the despicable behaviour of the Communist Party in attacking the Anarchists. But rather than just validating much of the Anarchist critique of the Stalinists, it also points out the paralysis that meant the CNT and the Anarchists in the FAI were side-lined and defeated by the statists inside the Republic.
