The Spanish Civil War

Burnett Bolloten

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter takes a more detailed look into the Anglo-French policies toward Spain, especially in light of its complex relations with Russia and Germany. Both Britain and France had feared that any interventions on their part in Spain's affairs would only come about to Russia's benefit, and potentially bolster Communism in the larger context of Europe. Nor did they care for the advancement of the German cause—both nations, as a matter of fact, preferred neither Germany nor Russia to gain the upper hand. Meanwhile, the chapter also considers how Stalin's democratic camouflage in Spain was doomed to failure, as despite distorting the true nature of the Revolution Stalin had failed to involve Britain and France in the Spanish conflict.

Keywords:   Britain, France, Russia, Germany, Communism, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, appeasement policy, Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler
