July 17th, 1936 - Beginning of Spanish Civil war


July 17th, 1936 - after a coup of fascist oriented officers, civil war breaks out in Spain. Its an uneven conflict. The rebels receive support from the Axis powers Germany and Italy while the Republican government is dependent on the help of poorly equipped troops and volunteers from abroad. After three years the war is over. General Francesco Franco established a dictatorship in Spain. His victory comes at a high price. Thousands of civilians are killed during the civil war. Until today the town of Guernica destroyed by German Air Force is a symbol of the suffering of the civilian population in Spain.
