Could not take it anymore after 10 minutes!
Roberto Vitale | Orlando, FL USA | 10/01/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"There is no political or strategic explanation for the war or events leading to it. Most annoying, the speaker is reading poetry instead of giving an objective account of such events. Apparently, the ideological nature of the war, which drew "intellectuals" and volunteers from many countries, is emphasized by this poetical bias. I want objective facts. I did no buy a literary work. I could not take it after 10 minutes, and I did not watch anymore.

Pro-Republican propaganda
Old Grumbler | Canada | 03/29/2010
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Despite having an official portrait of Generalissimo Franco on the cover, this supposedly "historical" narrative of the Spanish Civil War is an unmitigated apology for the Republican side in general, and the International Brigades in particular. The narrator even states - wrongly - that George Orwell was a member of the latter. Then he goes all gooey about the death of (yes, you've guessed it) Federico Garcia Lorca. Needless to say, this is not sound history but biased propaganda. Avoid and save money."
