Were the foreign volunteers in the Spanish Civil War beneficial to the Republican side?

  • civil war beneficial

    Foreign volunteers were instrumental in international propaganda. Foreign volunteers did not make a significant impact for the Republican side militarily, but they were instrumental in propaganda internationally. The volunteers brought international attention to the Republican by their mere presence and were able to send biased reports back to their home countries. This created some international sympathy which is still present today, as the atrocities and repression of the Republican government are largely overlooked.

  • Yes They Were

    According to historians and first hand accounts the foreign volunteers often fought side by side with the Republican side and were just as much help as the legions created to fight in the war. Therefore, I believe it is safe to assume that the foreign volunteers in the Spanish Civil War were beneficial to the Republican side.

  • The foreign Volunteers were helpful

    The foreign Volunteers were beneficial to the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War. Many people do not believe that to be the case but the facts prove otherwise. The citizens did not think the volunteers would not be useful enough to help out but that was not the case.

  • Necessary volunteers for war

    Volunteers in the Spanish Civil War turned the tide. But it should be noted what happened after the war. Was there reconditioning of the society? Were religious and political strains still present? We can hope that that war, though won by the Republicans, finished off old blood feuds in that nation.
