The death of General Franco in 1975 was followed by an exemplary transition from dictatorship to democracy. Today, Spanish people enjoy rights and liberties that were ruthlessly denied for forty years, and Spain is a respected and enthusiastic member of the international community. Unfortunately, the price of national reconciliation was the impunity of those responsible for acts of extreme brutality, not only during the Civil War (1936-39), but also in the years that followed the conflict. Franco – History to the Defeated describes a chain of events and circumstances which define the dictatorship, and explores both the role of Spain in the Second World War and the role of the many Britons involved on both sides of the political divide.

Jonathan Whitehead was born in Wimbledon in 1953. He studied Politics at the University of Reading and later completed an MA in Contemporary European Studies. He first visited Madrid in 1977 and eventually settled in Spain in 1982. He has worked as a teacher since that date. He lives in Alicante.
