In July 1936 "Generalissimo" Franco and the mass of the Spanish Army made a coup against the Spanish popular front government. Their plan failed because the Spanish people stood up against the Army by spontaneously forming militia.
Till spring 1939 Spain was divided into 2 sides fighting a fierce war the "Republicans" and the "Nationalists". Millions of Spanish soldiers fought on both sides. The Nationalists were supported massively by Italy and Germany, The Republicans were supported by the USSR and thousands of volunteers from all countries of the world who formed the famous International Brigades.
The Spanish Civil was the battlefield where European major powers tested their war machines for WWII.
Historically the war ended with a Nationalist decisive victory. More than 500 000 people were killed in the Spanish Civil War. Both sides - especially the Nationalists - committed a lot of war crimes. Franco: "If necessary I will execute half of Spain".
The Republicans formed the slogan ¡No Pasarán!, meaning "no passage" (for the Nationalists).
