The Spanish Civil War

This chapter traces the background and development of a new government headed by Largo Caballero, amidst inter-factional discord within the left wing movements. At the time of the Revolution, the Socialists had retained a large amount of influence. And as noted in the previous chapter, the Communist party had had to camouflage and distort the true nature of the Revolution in order to secure its place as a ruling party among the left. Moreover, the underlying differences between the Communists and Socialists were thrown into sharp focus during the outbreak of the Revolution. In light of this, the left Socialist leader Largo Caballero advocated for a merger between the Communist and Socialist labor federations, eventually prevailing over these differences, and establishing a coalition government between the Communist and Socialist parties for the first time in history.
