Spain's political climate was extremely volatile in the 1930s, under the Second Republic, with various sectors of society all vying for power. The elections of February 1936 were won by a coalition of socialist and anarchist groups known as the Frente Popular or FP, and were followed by a period of strikes, uprisings and social disorder. On 18 July of that year, General Francisco Franco led a military coup. In the ensuing war Franco's side was known as the Nacionales and the government forces as the Republicanos. Neither army was well-equipped, so foreign support was a decisive factor: the USSR sent aid to the Republicans and volunteers from all over Europe formed Brigadas Internacionales (International Brigades) to fight with them. Fascist Italy and Germany sent troops and weapons to Franco. The fighting was bitter and protracted, and the Nationalists' superior firepower finally triumphed. The war ended officially on 1 April 1939, when Franco proclaimed himself Jefe del Estado, a position he held for the next 36 years.
