The Spanish Civil WarStreaming Video - 2005
This program covers the roots of the Spanish Civil War-the electoral defeat of right-wing forces by the union of left-wing parties into the Popular Front; the polarization of Left and Right as Fascism and Communism loomed on the far side of the Pyrenees; the young officers' conspiracy that began the uprising in Morocco. Within days, the conflict had spread to Spain, and the bitter Civil War had begun. The program covers the course of the war: the battles, the targeting of civilians (including the bombing of Guernica), the human cost, the intervention of the totalitarian powers and the non-intervention of the democracies-until, at the end, the Soviet Union withdrew its support and the International Brigades were disbanded, Nationalist forces entered Madrid, and the war was over, leaving more than a million people dead, wounded, or as refugees.
