The Spanish Civil War started in 1936, after five years of "Republican" left wing rule. The King ALPHONSO XIII had abdicated in 1931, and the Great Depression forced Spain into absolute poverty. The Republican (Communist) Government appealed for help to the Soviet Union whereupon the Right wing FASCISTS rebelled under GENERALISSIMO FRANCISCO FRANCO, who received help from both ADOLPH HITLER AND BENITO MUSSOLINI. The world looked on for three years as a terrible slaughter took place and eventually the Fascists were victorious. Franco, born in 1892, became Dictator and died in 1975.
