Blood of Spain
Blood of Spain
By Ronald Eraser
Pantheon, 1979, 628 pp.

Fraser interviewed some 300 surviving participants of the Spanish Civil War and has fashioned their testimony into a highly readable history of "how people lived that war." What emerges from the testimony-the passions and bitterness of war, revolution and counterrevolution-is a version at once different from and complementary to existing political and military histories.
