(p.308) Chapter Thirteen The Military Conspiracy
The Collapse of the Spanish Republic, 1933-1936

Stanley G. Payne

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses the Spanish military conspiracy and revolt of 1936. The disaster of military activism in Spanish politics between 1917 and 1931 made most officers hesitant to throw themselves into the fray. The propaganda of the left also made it clear that in any radical confrontation, defeated military dissidents would not be treated as leniently as had sometimes been the case in the past. Thus, many would-be rebels committed themselves fully to the revolt only after reaching the negative conclusion that it would be more dangerous for them if they did not, a situation which matured fully only in mid-July.
