The Spanish Civil War

This chapter chronicles the Comintern's efforts to minimize and even conceal the revolution in Spain from the outside world, by defining the struggle against General Franco as one for the defense of the bourgeois democratic Republic. Because of a fear of involvement in a war with Italy and Germany, Russia limited its aid to bolstering the resistance of the anti-Franco forces until such time as Britain and France, faced by the threat to their interests in the Mediterranean of an Italo-German overlordship of Spain, might be induced to abandon the policy of nonintervention. Russia, moreover, was careful to neither throw its influence on the side of the left wing of the Revolution nor identify with it.

Keywords:   Comintern, anti-Franco forces, Italy, Germany, France, Britain, nonintervention, Revolution, Russia
