The Spanish Civil War (book) - Wikipedia

This book is not a military history of the war in any sense. Names of major battles are indeed dropped constantly, but that is not the focus. This book is all about death and how Americans dealt with it during this period. The book is divided up by theme, which works very well. Faust also does a good job of linking these themes, so you do get a sense of how everything ties together. Americans had a very strong sense of what was to be expected prior to death that the war largely interrupted. They wanted a 'Good Death' where ritual was important: loved ones had to be near, the dying person was always at home and had to accept death willingly as per religious beliefs , the hearing of the dying person's last words was also extremely important.
