Separated into four chronologically divided sections, it focuses largely on the international reactions to and the involvement of other powers in the unfolding of events in Spain- the role of foreign powers in the Spanish Civil War, including an examination of French and British reactions to the situation in Spain, and Soviet, German and Italian involvement- the period of the Second World War, with a particular focus on Spains relations to the Axis and Vichy France especially during the period of 1940/41 when a Spanish entry into the war was most likely. The fate of the Spanish refugees and exiles in Britain and France is also highlighted, as is Spains international position in the aftermath of the Second World War and particularly the attitude of the former Allies, Britain, France, the Soviet Union, and the USA. The volume ends with Spains response to the unfolding economic cooperation and integration in Western Europe.
