A detailed study into the causes of and the preparations for the military rising, told from the Nationalist point of view. This book shows that the revolt originated among disgruntled officers and that civilian help came only from the numerically insignificant Phalanx and Carlists. As early as 1933, the author asserts, Catholic youths from Navarre were sent to Italy and Tunis for military training.
