Francisco Franco Bahamonde. The war had ended. During the early days, about 50,000 people who were trapped on the other side were executed by the so-called walks. These were carried out by armed groups who were going to seek out people to their homes or prisons where prisoners were under the euphemism of will give a tour of wore them any road or the walls of the cemetery and executed them (among them the famous writer and poet Federico Garcia Lorca). The number of dead in the Spanish Civil war can only be estimated approximately.
Nationalist forces put the figure of 500,000, including not only the dead in combat, but also the victims of bombings, executions and murders. Recent estimates give also the figure of 500,000 or less. This does not include all those that died of malnutrition, hunger and diseases engendered by the war. The political and emotional implications of war have transcended what is a national conflict, since by many other countries, the Spanish Civil War was seen as part of an international conflict that is waged between religion and atheism, the revolution and fascism. For the Soviet Union, Germany and Italy, Spain was testing new methods of aerial warfare and battle tanks ground. For Great Britain and France, the conflict represented a new threat to the international balance uneasily trying to preserve, which collapsed in 1939 (a few months after the end of the Spanish war) with the outbreak of the most terrible conflict that remember ever: the second world war.
