IB History Term 3

Topic IB Syllabus
The Spanish Civil War is almost a local history topic for us. The character of the Toulouse region, even today, owes much to consequences to the conflict which marked such a turning point in the 20th century. Although you may be fortunate enough to have a direct essay question on the Spanish Civil War at Standard Level  (it is a named conflict for study in Topic 1 and Franco is a dictator for Topic 3), it is much more likely that you will be asked to compare two conflicts (even civil wars) from different regions of the world. In studying Spain, therefore, you must always be aware of the need to compare the war in Spain with the civil war in China. This is also an overlap topic for Higher Level  students of the European Option.
