Spanish Civil War: 1936 - 1939


 Largely a forgotten war but important non the less. The Spanish Civil war was between 1936-39 and one of the most brutal ever.


Canadian International volunteers in the Spanish Civil War. In 1936, 1700 Canadian volunteers traveled to Spain to fight fascism under Franco. A flavor of what happened there is seen in the recent move Pan's Labyrinth.
