Incorporating local, national and internationaldimensions of the conflict, Gibraltar andthe Spanish Civil War, 1936-39 provides the first detailed account of theBritish enclave Gibraltar's role during and after the Spanish Civil War. The neutral stance adopted by democratic powers uponthe outbreak of the Spanish Civil War is well-known. The Non-InterventionCommittee played a key role in this strategy, with Great Britain a key playerin what became known as the "London Committee". British interests in theIberian Peninsula, however, meant that events in Spain were of crucialimportance to the Foreign Office and the victory of the Popular Front inFebruary, 1936 was deemed a potential threat that could drive the countrytowards instability. This book explores how British authorities in Gibraltarostensibly initiated a formal policy of neutrality when the uprising tookplace, only for the Gibraltarian authorities to provide real support for theNationalists under the surface. The book draws on a wealth of primary source material,some of it little-known before now, to deliver a significant contribution toour knowledge of the part played by democratic powers in the 1930s'confrontation between Communism and Fascism. It is an important resource for anyoneseeking a more complete understanding of the Spanish Civil War.
