Confusing Background[edit]

I found the Background section very confusing. It's hard to follow why the country fractured and which leaders and groups were on which side. Additionally, the section states that Niceto Alcalá-Zamora was the first prime minister of the Second Spanish Republic. A few sentences later, it says that Manuel Azaña was made Prime Minister, but when I click his name it says he was the first Prime Minister of the Second Spanish Republic. --Odie5533 (talk) 23:54, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Alcalá-Zamora was the first president of the republic. Azaña the first prime minister. (talk) 22:10, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
If that is so, then the article is wrong. The article currently states, "Niceto Alcalá-Zamora became the first prime minister." --Odie5533 (talk) 15:32, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
Thomas (1961) supports that Zamora was the first Prime Minister: "A new government took over the ministries in Madrid with ease. The first Prime Minister of the republic was Niceto Alcalá Zamora, a barrister from Andalusia, with the flowery style of eloquence typical of that region." --Odie5533 (talk) 15:41, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Zamora was the first president and Azaña was the first prime minister according to The Battle For Spain By Atony Beevor (2006) (page 23) "On 14 April 1931 the revolutionary committee headed be Niceto Alcalá Zamora.. converted itself into the provisional government if the Republic. Alcalá Zamora then became president and head of state." then later on (page 28)"on 9 December the constitution was voted through. Niceto Alcalá Zamora was formally elected president of the Republic and on 15 December Azaña formed a new government". I've corrected this in the background section.

Date inconsistency[edit]

The article starts out "The Spanish Civil War was fought from 17 July 1936 to 1 April 1939...", but in the infobox it says "18 July 1936 – 28 March 1939". I looked at a few other articles in other languages, and they indicate 17 July 1936 to 1 April 1939 in their infoboxes. Feludnost (talk) 00:31, 12 May 2014 (UTC)


Is similar, but not same. It is not preparation for World War 3. Desde1931 (talk) 01:45, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

thank you, and please[edit]

please ask in international public from Felipe Juan Pablo Alfonso de Todos los Santos de Borbón y de Grecia; born 30 January 1968: Was it good or bad that Spanish Civil War broke out? Desde1931 (talk) 00:42, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
