Images of the Spanish Civil War by Raymond Carr

I had no idea that Images of the Spanish Civil War by Raymond Carr would be such an interesting book. It shows a different perspective of war through imagines. The imagines are from both sides of the war and show the horrors of fighting, but also political propaganda, imagines of the political leaders and ordinary Spaniards affected by the war.

I think this is a great book for anybody, even without a specific interest in the Spanish civil war. I say this because there are wars still going on and it is chilling to see how much the pictures from the Spanish civil war, in the late 30s, resemble similar modern day wars, currently raging in the eastern world, like Syria. I highly recommend this book.

  • Sometimes visuals can leave a far more lasting impression than words. I’m not sure if the Holocaust is still mentioned in secondary school history classes in the US anymore, but I know I’ll never forget the large photographs that were passed around our classroom. They were horrific, but important to see.
