The Spanish Civil War, the Soviet Union, and Communism

This chapter discusses the potential success of the Communist strategy, with the formation of the new government entrusted to Juan Negrin. As prime minister of the Republic from May 1937 to March 1939, Dr. Juan Negrin Lopez would become the most controversial figure of the Spanish Civil War. By the winter of 1939 this Socialist politician, the principal war leader of the Republic, and the champion of its policy of resistance, may also have become in some ways the single most hated public figure in the Republican zone. Many Republicans would come to consider him a mere Soviet lackey, a treacherous politician who made himself a slave to Moscow, determined only to implement a cynical Stalinist policy of fighting to the last Spanish Republican, without seriously committing the Soviet Union.
