1st April 1939
End of Spanish civil war 1936 to 1939



On 1st April 1939, Generalissimo Francisco Franco broadcast a radio message to announce the end of the Spanish Civil War:

"En el día de hoy, cautivo y desarmado el Ejército Rojo, han alcanzado las tropas nacionales sus últimos objetivos militares. La guerra ha terminado. Burgos, April 1, 1939.” 

“Today, after having disarmed and captured the Red Army, the Nationalist troops have secured their final military objective. The war is ended.

This marked the end of the three year brutal and savage civil war in Spain. The second world war started just 5 months later.
