This chapter examines the significance of the assassination of Calvo Sotelo. It discusses the government's reaction to the killing and how assassination became the catalyst that transformed a limping conspiracy into a powerful revolt which set off a massive civil war. The civil war ended the constitutional life of the Republic, replaced by what has varyingly been termed the “Third Republic,” the “Spanish People's Republic,” and the “revolutionary Republican confederation” of 1936–1937.
