Red Spanish Notebook - Mary Low and Juan Breá "A phenomenal lyrical account of the Spanish revolution" Blood of Spain - Ronald Fraser "A wonderful oral history that provides a variety of perspectives" The Spanish Civil War - Granada documentary "Lots of interviews with participants and a wide variety of sources" The fabulous podcast artwork of Sam Cooke is by Sarah Bilton: @bilton_art on Instagram for commissions.
