NKVD IN THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR. PART 1

A. Fedorov

However all the efforts of historians in the history of the Spanish civil war (1936-39), there are still a lot of poorly studied episodes, and much, as before, is covered by myths and speculations that have little in common with reality. One of these issues is the role of the Soviet NKVD residency in the Spanish civil war. In this article we will try to reconstruct the role and the place of this organization in the events of those years.
