(p.34) 3 Military Rebellion and Civil War
The Spanish Civil War

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter discusses the conspiratorial activities of military and political leaders as well as their difficulties in reaching agreement regarding the insurrection. It offers reasons as to why the government had not been able to prevent the uprising despite numerous reports of insurgent activities, and how the little they had done to act upon these conspiracies only aggravated tensions further. The chapter positions General Emilio Mola as the rebellion's principal organizer who was responsible for uniting the diverse conspiracies and rebellious impulses against the Republic and the Popular Front. It notes that even within the rebellion's ranks further crises threatened to stall the insurrection, such as Francisco Franco's hesitance to join the rebellion till later on. Furthermore, plans for the uprising were hindered by political differences between the rival Alphonsine and Carlist monarchists as well as by disagreements between the Falange and the military conspirators.

Keywords:   military conspiracy, military leaders, political leaders, Emilio Mola, Francisco Franco, Spanish Republic, Popular Front
