Opinions On Spanish Civil War?Watch
I like Spanish republican music though
I'd like to learn more about the civil war given that my maternal grandparents were growing up during it, my great-grandparents fought in it, and also that Franco came from the same region of Spain as my dad's side of the family.
Franco was always more likely to win, since he managed to unite all anti-monarchists into the Falange, and got Hitler to support him.
he was brutal, but then i think spain had been pretty unstable for well into the 19th century, so it needed him to some degree. Even still, i don't think Spain has been a success since it became a democracy, it's still poor compared to the northern European EU members.
