July 1936 is nominally marked as the beginning of the Spanish Civil War, which was caused by General Franco’s uprising against the Republican regime.

But, if we step outside the leftist narrative and explore the causes objectively we realise that the Spanish republic was not the paradisiacal regime we are told it was, and that the uprising was more a matter of survival against leftist totalitarianism than anything else.

War drums were already beating since the “general strike” of 1934, which in reality was an armed insurrection, orchestrated by the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE), which, had it succeeded, would have imposed in Spain a communist regime in the image and likeness of the Soviet Union, which was always pulling the strings of the Popular Front.
