(p.180) 17 Wooing Britain and France
The Spanish Civil War

Burnett Bolloten

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter examines in greater detail British and French foreign policies toward Spain, particularly in counterpoint to Russian aims. It shows how powerful forces in Britain and France hoped to use Germany as a counterpoise to Russia and how they aimed to purchase immunity for the West from the devastation of war and revolution by supporting German hegemony in Eastern Europe against the threat of Communism. British and French attitudes toward the Spanish Civil War were thus determined not merely by their hostility to revolutionary changes, of which they were aware of despite attempts to conceal them behind the façade of a “democratic Republic,” but by the whole field of foreign politics.

Keywords:   Britain, France, Germany, Russia, Communism, foreign politics, revolutionary changes, foreign policies
