Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Spain 1936-39.

Franco/Hitler win.

They kept Franco busy for three full years, and prevented Spain from making a meaningful contribution to the Axis war effort. That's at least a draw.

Fighting doesn't guarantee that you'll win. But not fighting guarantees that you'll lose.

Unless, of course, you labour under the delusion that if the communists had appeased the fascists and not demanded land reform, the fascists would never have launched their coup? But then I have to wonder who is really the naive one...
