||This program sets the stage for an in-depth study of the Spanish Civil War by making sense of the political situation during the run-up to the war; by profiling disparate groups-centrists, anarchists, socialists, communists, separatists-and their leaders and backers; and by tracking the volatile events that snaked, like a powder train, toward the conflagration that in 1936 erupted in Madrid and touched off the military uprising in Spanish Morocco. The program concludes with the Battles of Badajoz and Talavera. Commentary by Ismael Saz, of the University of Valencia; Complutense University of Madrid's Julio Arostegui; religious historian Hilari Raguer i Suner; and others is featured.
