Judge Baltasar Garzón has launched a criminal investigation
into the fate of tens of thousands of people who vanished during the country's civil war and General Francisco Franco' s dictatorship. This is upsetting
. The Spanish Civil War left an estimated half a million people dead.
The Spanish Civil War had global resonations

The decisive influence of Latin American fascists in the decades following the war (including their intimate collaboration with elements of U.S. intelligence) is a matter of public record. The legacy of the Falange Exterior
