Comrades should be aware that the despicable Ronald Radosh wrote a book 
titled "Spain Betrayed. The Soviet Union in the Spanish Civil War" in 2001. 
This David Horowitz-clone makes the argument that it was a good thing that 
Franco triumphed. The Fall 2004 Science and Society basically answers 
Radosh as well as providing other useful information on the Spanish Civil 
War. Unfortunately S&S is not online but I can forward articles to anybody 
with a particularly strong need.
