La propaganda franquista durante la Guerra Civil by María-del-Pilar Rodríguez-Hernandez is a book, in Spanish, about propaganda during the Spanish Civil War.

I will not talk too much about it because it’s in Spanish, without an English version. I like the structure of the book, very clear and well defined. The topics touched upon in the book are varied and very interesting. I also loved learning about Quiepo de Llano’s radio transmissions during the war. He was very keen on radio and had regular “shows” for propaganda reasons and not only. There were many primary sources included, which was great.

For me this was a good book. I would have liked a bit more analysis, but overall was great, hence the 4 stars. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to study the Spanish Civil War.

    • Why don’t you try again. You might be able to remember more than you think and it’s a good exercise. If you have the time, why not? I was surprised to see how easy it was for me to read in Spanish even if it’s a language I studied at school. I was expecting to struggle, but I didn’t. I read slower than in English or Romanian, but at a good speed to be able to read more books in Spanish, which is great, as I really need it for university.

      • I still have some literature books on the shelf. Perhaps I’ll pull one down….

        I can remember a time when I occasionally watched Spanish “soap operas” on Telemundo and got a big kick out of them (even if I didn’t understand half of what I was hearing).

        • I loved watching telenovelas too, as a teenager. This is how I’ve started to learn Spanish, as they were shown with subtitles and not dubbed. They were a bit addictive. :))
