About Francisco Franco The love of fascism brought victory and defeat. At the time of his birth, Spain was saddened by the loss of the status of a giant maritime empire and the wrath of the superpower losing it to America. The country was severed from imperial rule he was looking for a new way to himself. It is Franco who grew up in such times Although he wanted to join the fleet like his father, The Spanish fleet was destroyed in 1898 as a result of the Spanish-American War. The fleet was cutting down and Franco, a 14-year-old, needed to be enrolled in land forces. After three years of training in one of the most prestigious military academies in the country, he enlisted in the army as a lieutenant and served two years. It was the first years of the 1900s. People were protesting against the government for the collapsing empire. The government has gone to the nearest territories to return to the past: Morocco. Already since the 15th century, there were imperialist dreams about this country. And in those days, Morocco was the only choice for a Spanish soldier who wanted to pursue a career. It was 1912, when Franco joined the operations in Morocco. The Man Who Runs to the Missile At the age of twenty, he won La Cruz Militar, one of the best military medals in his country for his success in Morocco. In spite of his fatal wounds in the abdomen, he recovered shortly afterwards and took up arms. His passion was strong enough to heal his wound. As a result, Colonel returned to the Spanish garrison. Frankon’s rise to the rank of general did not take long. Conducted military hierarchy with rapid steps. He was 36 years old when he was head of the military academy in Saragossa. Spain was ruled by General Miguel de Rivera, who came to power in the 1923-30 coup, who also received the approval of King XII Alfons. Rivera, appointed by the King as prime minister, began to rule Spain with an iron fist. He abolished the constitution, declared a state of emergency, and ceased to exist for all political parties without allowing anyone to breathe. However, he did not suffer much. He was fired in 1930 after losing support. With his resignation the king descended from the throne in 1931 and left the country. Thus, Spain entered the Republican regime for the second time. As much as he loved the monarchy, Franco kept himself in the shadows did not want to risk. But he still could not save himself. He was removed from high-ranking officers supporting the monarchy and was assigned to various positions outside of Madrig. In 1933, the republic collapsed. What they had promised was not true. The conflict between the Republicans and the left wing has led the country to new elections. Nationalists came to power. It was 1934 when mining workers rebelled against nationalist government’s hard work. The man who was called upon to use force to suppress the rebellion was none other than General Franco. The unprecedented “success” that he had made against his own people led to his headquarters. Step towards civil war …. As the 1936 elections approached, Republicans and factions from the left wing formed the People’s Front. and managed to stay in power. General Franco was considered a dangerous man and assigned to the Canary Islands a simple task. The nationalist movement that began on July 17 of the same year shook Spain. Franco flew to Morocco, a Spanish subcontinent seized by the Canaries, after taking over the management of the Canary Islands. In those days, the nationalists, together with the Spanish army, prepared a coup plan, but the plan was unsuccessful. The civil war began in Spain. It was time for Franco to take the stage. In September 1936 Franco became the head of the Nationalist Army and immediately declared himself the head of state. As the civil war officially ended on April 1, 1939, Spain opened a new page: Dictatorship of Franco! Franco begins to dictate. Civil war ended in the country, but economy and politics collapsed. Franco and his supporters embraced nationalist victory with brutal propaganda, and the political divide between winning nationalists and defeated Republicans deepened. Even though the general may have survived the war, we cannot say for sure about the economy. After the outbreak of World War II, Franco sided with Hitler. Before the war the German leader had a close relationship with them. Hitler’s Condor community during the civil war in Guatemala, Basque the Republicans bombed, causing hundreds of Spaniards to die. The killing of its own citizens by armed men from another country in order to gain power Franco would never be punished for this crime. Although Hitler and Franco met in 1940 to support Spain’s Nazi Germany Franco’s help to Hitler never came. Already declaring its neutrality in 1943, when old Germans began to be defeated. wanted to save his life without a post-war settlement. But it was not successful. After the war, Franco and Spain were isolated. The Allies imposed sanctions on Spain. The country’s economy was hit by this. But this was not the case. Although the dictator’s death was long overdue The Spaniards did not count on Frankoy. Despite the name being removed from all the buildings, the Spaniards are still upset. Between 1939 and 75, Spain was known as Franco’s Spain. For some Spaniards, it was the most beautiful thing that had ever happened to the country, and to others it was, of course, the worst.
