about this item
More than forty years after his death, the spectral image of General Francisco Franco, the "Caudillo" or "Generalissimo" still haunts modern Spain, an uncomfortable reminder of a regrettable recent past. At the time of his death Franco had been the head of a dictatorial regime for almost 40 years. In this book, Enrique Moradiellos redraws Franco in three dimensions – Franco, the man; Franco, the Caudillo and Franco's Spain. In so doing, he offers a reappraisal of Franco's personality, his leadership style and the nature of the regime that he established and led until his death. As a dictator who established his power prior to World War II and maintained it well into the 1970s, Franco was one of the most central figures of twentieth-century European history. In this book, Enrique Moradiellos Garcia examines the dictatorship as well as the dictator and, in doing so, reveals new aspects to our understanding of General Franco, the Caudillo.
