Reviews

"This is a thorough, objective and insightful treatment of a complex relationship that constitutes a major contribution to the diplomatic history of World War II. It will become the standard account." - Stanley Payne, University of Wisconsin"Yet another indication of a resurgnece of interest in Franco's Spain, this study of relations between the Roosevelt administration and the Franco regime in the two years prior to US intervention in WWII offers studious research coupled with astute analysis." - B.T. Browne, Choice
