Taillebois wrote:+1 for Beevor's Battle for Spain - next to me as I write this (in Palau Saverdera, Catalonia) - was actually first published in 1982 before his better known Stalingrad - but was revised and re-issued in 2006.
I also just noticed Beevor's wife is Artemis Cooper - author of a recent biography of Patrick Leigh Fermor - he who wandered across Europe in 1933 and later, during the war captured the German commander in Crete - and settled in the Mani peninsula - and wrote several books - most of which are worth reading.
+1 for homage to Catalonia too.
Hearts of Iron 2 & 3 have scenarios for the SCW for those of you who perhaps have those games.

There is a best phrase, an epic one
"¡Cuidado mi teniente, cuidado conmigo, eh! Hemos corrido un encierro, nos hemos tragado una misa, hemos llevado una virgen, hemos cargado con un marqués, usted ha afeitado a un fascista, a mí me han pegado una cornada, éste... ¡se ha cagao!, a éste... lo han vestido de sacristán y a éste le han puesto los cuernos... y todo por la jodida vaca ¡Qué le den mucho por el saco a la vaca! Yo me voy a comer (Brigada Castro)"
