The Spanish Civil War

This chapter chronicles the tensions that would eventually give rise to the Spanish Civil War. It argues that these enmities had been steadily developing since the fall of the Monarchy and the proclamation of the Republic in April 1931 and, with increasing intensity, since the victory of the Popular Front—the left coalition—in the February 1936 elections. Labor unrest in the rural and urban sectors was only the beginning—the 1934 repression of the Socialists, along with the animosity felt between the political left and right, led to continued episodes of provocation and retaliations that only grew worse following the victory of the Popular Front. All these, coupled with a beleaguered government unsuccessfully attempting to quell the growing unrest, would eventually result in a military revolt that broke out in Spanish Morocco on July 17, 1936, initiating the Civil War.

Keywords:   labor unrest, Popular Front, political left, political right, military revolt, Socialists, fascists
