Title: 1936 - Spanish Civil War


About: A military coup escalates the tension in a divided nation, pitting Nationalists against Republicans and plunging Spain into a bitter civil war lasting from July 1936 to April 1939. Although the fighting itself began in 1936, the fault lines had been forming for decades. The generals who rebelled against Spain’s democratically elected government aimed to turn the clock back on social, cultural and political change. For many observers, the internationalisation of the conflict turned it into a Europe-wide struggle between fascism and democracy.
