I have a Spanish culture and civ final tomorrow - and I still don't get what set off la guerra civil and what the principle causes were. I know it's the nacionales vs. los republicanos. The leader of the nacionales was Franco - and they won because they had more military support from their allies (more money, etc) - but what else? Like when you think of the American Civil War you think slavery. What's the bottom line with the Spanish civil war? And while we're at it - what defines la primera republica from the segunda republica? Why were the republicanos against the segunda republica? ARG!!! ANY help would be appreciated - spanish and english explinations both appreciated! Help!!!
