The Spanish Civil War, begun in July 1936, was a preliminary round of World War II. Hitler's and Mussolini's cooperation with General Franco resulted in the Axis agreement of October 1936 and the subsequent Pact of Steel of May 1939, immediately following the end of the Civil War.

This study presents comprehensive documentation of Hitler's use of the upheaval in Spain to strengthen the Third Reich diplomatically, ideologically, economically, and militarily. While the last great cause drew all eyes to Western Europe and divided the British and especially the French internally, Hitler could pursue territorial gains in Eastern Europe.

This book, based on little-known German records and recently opened Spanish archives, fills a major gap in our understanding of one of the 20th century's most significant conflicts. Its comprehensive treatment of German-Spanish relations from 1936 through 1939, bringing together diplomatic, economic, military, and naval aspects, will be of great value to specialists in European diplomacy and the political economy of Nazi imperialism, as well as to all students of the Spanish Civil War.

About the Author:

Robert H. Whealey is associate professor of history at Ohio University.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this chilling study, the first comprehensive work in English on Germany's role in the Spanish Civil War, Whealey demonstrates how Hitler exploited that conflict to promote the slogan "anti-communism" and, by so doing, solidify his relations with international corporate and church leaders. By exploding a local struggle into a European diplomatic contest, Hitler weakened ties among the Allies and diverted attention from his plans for territorial expansion. The arms and supplies he provided Franco served as a bargaining tool with the Japanese, who believed he was taking an active military stand against communism, contends the author. Meanwhile, Hitler left to Franco the main burden of crushing the Popular Front, and he slyly encouraged Mussolini to become the prime interventionist. In exchange for desperately needed arms, Franco gave the Nazi war machine iron ore, wool and hides. Whealey, who teaches at Ohio University, draws on German, Spanish and Italian sources to buttress his shrewd assessment that "Franco and Hitler both won the Spanish Civil War."
