1st May – We will attack!, 1937

The Spanish Civil War, fought from 1936 to 1939, was a complex conflict between the Republicans and Nationalists, both vying for control over Spain’s government and its future. The Republicans supported the left-leaning Popular Front government of the Second Spanish Republic and consisted of various socialist, communist, separatist, anarchist, and republican parties. On the other hand, the Nationalists were an alliance of Falangists, monarchists, conservatives, and traditionalists led by General Francisco Franco.
