About this book

Examines Franco's relations with Hitler and Mussolini during the Second World War, this book makes use of two major sources: the German Admiralty's archives, stunning in their evidence of Franco's support; and the Spanish press, operating under a totalitarian regime and yearning for an Axis victory to the bitter end.
