The Spanish Civil War Part 3: Comrades
March 09, 2017 The Movements: A Podcast History of the Masses

The war is going badly for the Republic. As Franco consolidates power in the Nationalist zone, the divisions between the revolutionaries and the communists and right-socialists continue to deepen. Franco and his fascist allies seize control of the north and turn the tide in their favor. Desperate for a quick victory, the Republican popular army launches an attack on the mountain town of Teruel at the start of a record freezing winter. Meanwhile, Adolf Hitler expands Germany's borders while the bourgeois democracies do nothing. The Movements is a leftist history and politics podcast. Subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher and Google Play.
