Madrid Surrenders
The Spanish Civil War came to an end in March 1939, with the surrender of Madrid and Valencia. The Republicans had fought a long and valiant defense, but the superior armaments and outright intervention of the Germans and Italians (particularly the air forces), overwhelmed the Republicans. Seven hundred thousand lost their lives in battle; 30,000 were executed or assassinated and 15,000 were killed in aerial bombings during the course of the war.
