La Guerra Civil Española = the Spanish Civil War collection

Publication

From 1936 to 1939 Spain was a country divided both politically and militarily. The rebel Nationalist forces, led by General Francisco Franco, fought a bloody war against the left-wing Republican government, which finally ended in the triumph of Franco's forces and the overthrow of democracy in Spain. Foreign powers intervened on both sides, with fascist troops from Italy and Germany supporting the Nationalists, and soldiers from the Soviet Union joining international volunteers in support of the Republicans. In the years leading up to the Second World War, the Spanish Civil War became a symbol of the growing global struggle between fascism and democracy.
