The most detailed account of the little-known internal fighting in the coalition that won the Spanish Civil War. Despite a fundamental shared program that was anti-communist and the left in general, opposed democracy and liberalism, as well as freemasonry, and was in favor of Catholicism, and the use of violence as a political tool, Francoism included different sectors that competed for power. These internal struggles right at the end of the war have rarely been studied and are part of a fascinating history of the regime’s evolution and inner power struggles over the next forty years.
