Enjoyed how interactive this article was Elisa! I didn’t know much about Spain’s dictator until reading your article. Which was very fascinating and informative with the use of the timeline. Especially, Franco’s authoritarian and nationalist philosophy mirrored that of Hitler’s Nazi government. Who would’ve thought that both Franco and Hitler had mutual foes, notably communism. Francisco Franco is a controversial character in Spanish history, with wildly differing viewpoints. Following the turmoil and carnage of the Spanish Civil War, Franco’s administration restored order and peace to Spain. Some Spaniards admired Franco’s insistence on protecting Spanish culture and tradition.
