La Guerra Española 1936-1939

De 1936 a 1939 España fue un país dividido tanto política como militarmente. Las fuerzas rebeldes nacionalistas, encabezadas por el General Francisco Franco, libraron una sangrienta guerra contra el gobierno republicano de izquierdas que concluyó finalmente con el triunfo de las fuerzas franquistas y el derrocamiento de la democracia en España. Las potencias extranjeras intervinieron en ambos bandos. Mientras que las tropas fascistas de Italia y Alemania apoyaron a los nacionalistas, los soldados procedentes de la Unión Soviética se adhirieron a los voluntarios internacionales para respaldar a los republicanos. En los años previos al inicio de la II Guerra Mundial, la Guerra Civil española se convirtió en un símbolo de la creciente lucha internacional entre el fascismo y la democracia.
