Works specifically on the British Battalion
There are a number of books on the British Battalion. Three are works by members of the battalion, or its supporters:
Alexander, Bill. British Volunteers for Liberty. London: Lawrence & Wishart, 1982.
Ryan, Frank, ed. The Book of the XVth Brigade: Records of British, American, Canadian and Irish Volunteers in the XV International Brigade in Spain 1936-1938, Madrid: War Commissariat, 1938. reissued by Warren & Pell in 2003.
Rust, William. Britons in Spain. London: Lawrence & Wishart, 1939, reissued by Warren & Pell in 2003.
There are two academic studies. The first, a rather critical work, draws heavily on the material held in Moscow:
Hopkins, James K. Into the Heart of the Fire: The British in the Spanish Civil War. California: Stanford, 1998.
The second, also using the Moscow material, forms the basis of much of the information on this website:
Baxell, Richard. British Volunteers in the Spanish Civil War: The British Battalion in the International Brigades, 1936-1939. London, Routledge/Cañada Blanch Studies on Contemporary Spain, 2004 and reissued by Warren & Pell in 2007.
Lastly, the following is based mainly on the battle of Jarama in February 1937:
Hughes, Ben. They Shall Not Pass! The British Battalion at Jarama. Oxford: Osprey, 2011.
