July 2016: 80 years since the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War
July 2016 marks 80 years since the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939):

Spain's civil war was fought between the Republicans, who were loyal to the Second Spanish Republic, and the Nationalists led by General Francisco Franco.

After the Nationalist victory in 1939, Franco ruled Spain for the next 36 years until his death in November 1975.
