National Sources on The International Brigades

Post by Sargento3639 » 01 Oct 2019 11:53

Hi. I am currently embarking upon a project to research the battles in which the British Battalion of The International Brigades fought during the Spanish Civil War. I have numerous books written from their point of view but would very much like to be able to look at the "other side of the hill." Does anyone know of any books or other sources that talk about the British or other Brigades from the National perspective? I am also looking for more general accounts of the battles (especially at the moment of the Jarama.) is there, for example, an equivalent of the Official Histories? I'm especially interested in tactical details. Thanks.

I think you will get more answers if you ask these questions in the SCW section of the elgrancapitan forum:

I will do that as well. I just want to cover all the bases. Both have been recommended to me (with particular mention of your good self, Iron Machine.)

Thanks. I did actually have a small part in a Danish film about a poet and artist who died in Spain. It was called Shadow of a Hero. Now available on YouTube.
