The Spanish Civil War took place from 1936 to 1939. Spaniards faithful to the elected government (Republicans) fought against conservative and traditional forces (Nationalists) led by General Francisco Franco.  The struggle quickly became an international affair, with both Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany supporting Franco.  Republican appeals to Western democracies went unheeded and only the Communist Soviet Union pledged aid.
