We Saw Spain Die by Paul Preston


We Saw Spain Die by Paul Preston is the story of the Spanish Civil War as told by the foreign correspondents and journalists that covered the story. It is a vast and detailed view of the complications imposed on fact by ideology, partiality, special interest and downright self-promotion.

He would then 'dig out a jury', and bully it to a guilty verdict. To gratify his belligerent king, he would not rest until the victim has been marched to the scaffold and beheaded.
