"Through a unique combination of exhaustive research, forensic skills, and technical expertise on armaments, Howson establishes that the arms embargo played a much greater part in the Republic's defeat than is usually acknowledged" (from dj text). Moreover "the Soviets provided far less aid than has been thought and defrauded the Spanish government of millions of dollars by secretly manipulating the exchange rates" The author spent two decades researching this problem; previously he published "Aircraft of the Spanish Civil War"
