    The odd thing is, Mussolini and Fascist Italy isn't an unusual course on A-level history syllabi, especially in the context of wider courses on European dictatorships. I see no reason why at the very least the Spanish Civil War and Franco's régime isn't taught as part of this.

    I hope you enjoy yourself when you do go to Spain.
    Thank you, I'm sure I will! I've already been to Madrid, Barcelona, Ibiza (which was, in terms of historical sights, somewhat boring), and the Canary Islands, but I'd absolutely love to go to southern Spain because I think the Moorish influence and history there would be fascinating.

    I'm currently doing the IB and we cover the Spanish Civil War, though only very briefly unfortunately. I am, however, writing my 4,000 word extended essay on foreign intervention and its role in causing the Republican loss and, my my, it's so so so interesting!

    Well its not an event but the Republic of Venice. How could anyone not be intrigued by it. From its refugee origins, to its height of power in the Middle Ages, and then the long slow decline over three centuries, until a final nadir of ossified stagnation. Its was so very unique. I don't think there's been a state like it in the history of nations. And if that was not enough, the city itself has water for streets.
    Viva San Marco!

    I'd like to know more about the renaissance and Andalusia- I don't really know how to spell it
    We never really get taught this at school which makes it more interesting I guess.

    Being Polish, I like all the three Northern Wars content.

    It was a period of great post-Thirty Years War innovation in military strategy, architecture, defensive and offensive engineering, movement of peoples, unfortunate rise of Prussia as independent from the Polish crown, rise of Russian Tsardom at the expense of imperial Sweden.

    The siege of Stalingrad is an absolutely amazing time to learn about!
