The Spanish Civil War

This chapter recounts further discord within the government as tensions between Largo Caballero and the Communists reached breaking point. So far, Largo Caballero had proved a persistent obstacle for Communist aims, although the Spanish and Russian Communists alike had, for the most part, tolerated his actions in office. Tensions escalated when the Communists attempted to remove General Asensio from his post as undersecretary of war, even to the point that the Russian ambassador, Marcel Rosenberg, personally demanded his dismissal. Tired of Moscow's constant interference in state affairs, Largo Caballero expelled the ambassador from his office. Rosenberg's expulsion would finally convince the Communists of the futility of using Largo Caballero for their own purposes, and thus they began a smear campaign to undermine his authority.

Keywords:   Francisco Largo Caballero, Communist party, José Asensio, Marcel Rosenberg, Russia, Communist hegemony
