Synopsis:

The revolution that led Spain to dictatorship.

The Spanish revolution of 1917 was one of the most shocking political ruptures in Western Europe. Inspired by the Russian revolution of February/March of that year and in the midst of the First World War, the joint revolt of Republicans, trade unionists, Catalan nationalists and military juniors became the most transcendental event in the history of Spain in the 20th century, because it destroyed the normalized functioning of the constitutional Monarchy, cut short the birth of Spanish democracy and opened the floodgates to the long authoritarian cycle that the country went through over the next half century. The Spanish revolution unleashed the forces behind the dictatorships of Primo de Rivera and Franco, an unstable republic and a fratricidal Civil War.
