Inconvenient Belligerency. The Representation of the Allies in the Blue Division «Hoja de Campaña»
The task of the chapter is to examine the contents of the newspaper of the Blue Division (the Spanish volunteer unit that fought in the Russian front, together with the German army, in World War II). This analysis of the "Hoja de Campaña" [Campaign Leaflet] is centred on the perception of the Allies, distilled from the texts and cartoons of the publication. This is an original study, first of all because it is quite the first such approach to the contents of the "Hoja". Apart from this, the methodology used has a bearing not only on the necessary study of the texts of the publication but also on its graphic element, as an attractive story line to define the persistent images on which the perception of the Allies was built.
