I found both books an excellent and expansive take on our movement in the Revolution.Especially the many anecdotes and brief summaries of important Anarchists and Libertarians during the war.Also the subterfuge and coup by Mera and some leading Republicans against the Stalinists was new to me at the time in 1999.

Volume 2

A comprehensive view of the anarchists' role in Spain from 1936 to 1939, both during the conflict and in their unique social and economic experiments behind the lines. The author examines the part anarchists played in the defence of Madrid, as well as life in the rural and urban collectives.
