SPANISH CIVIL WAR
The Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) was a military rising originating in Morocco, headed by General Francisco Franco.

Over twelve hundred Canadian soldiers supporting Republican Spain took part in the Spanish Civil War to defend the Spanish Republic against the military rebellion led by General Franco and aided by Hitler and Mussolini.
