Summary "In this compelling book Stanley G. Payne offers the first comprehensive narrative of Soviet and Communist intervention in the revolution and civil war in Spain. He documents in unprecedented detail Soviet strategies, Comintern activities, and the role of the Communist Party in Spain from the early 1930s to the end of the civil war in 1939. While explaining the nature of Communist activity in Spain, Payne also illuminates revolutionary programs in other countries, analyzes for the first time the transition from revolutionary "Third Period" doctrine to the tactics of the Popular Front era, and clarifies how the Communists contributed to the collapse of the Republic."
