 Second Spanish Republic Information
The Second Spanish Republic (1931 1939) was the second and last period in Spanish history in which the election of both the positions of Head of State and Head of government were in the hands of the people.
The Republic, under military boycott by Britain and France, was militarily inferior to Franco's Nazi-aided forces and dependent for aircraft and tanks upon Stalin's distant USSR and for some of its front line troops upon International Brigades comprising socialist volunteers from around the world and Spanish anarchist militias.
For such reasons, the Nationalist victory in the Spanish Civil War and the abolition of the Republic are regarded by many as the first defeat of democracy, and a prelude of what was about to happen in the rest of Europe.
