Spain is still riven with painful memories of the defining war of the 20th century. Republicans versus Monarchists, Fascists versus Communists, Trade Unions versus Landed Classes, Church versus Anti-Clericalists. Not to mention Anarchism. Free Masonry and the thousands of international volunteers who went to fight for whatever they believed in. Spain’s war really did have it all. We will study the causes and course of this brutal conflict, and how it ended with the installation of Franco, modern Europe’s longest living dictator.
