For Whom the Bell Tolls. 17 July 1936 – 1 April 1939. The Spanish Civil War can be seen as one of the other revolutions of Europe. On a par with the French and Russian revolutions. It certainly matched those two for deaths and long-term effects on the people and the state. In a sense, it was a battleground for all the ideologies of the 20th century. And an example of the failure of the democracies of the time to prevent bloodshed. Please register for this class if you are interested in participating via Zoom only.
