The doctoral thesis it focuses on the so-called war newspapers or trench press (soldier newspapers in the Anglo-Saxon world). We understand by war press the one produced by and for the soldiers of an army during a warlike conflict.

The main objective of this thesis is to analyze how the image was used to educate and influence Republican soldiers. The educational work carried out by the republican government on the fronts during the Spanish Civil War has been previously studied by different historians of education, who have made use, among other sources, of the war press to document experiences and the project. developed during the conflict.
