Spanish Civil War: Day-by-Day: 16th June 1937

The POUM was outlawed and its leaders were arrested.

The POUM flag.


  1. This day by day thing in real time is quite interesting. Doesn't seem like yesterday since the revolution started and Barcelona, Catalonia, Aragon were collectivised/run by the unions. Already we're into the first major government repression. Intellectually, I knew the date and timeline but this approach makes you feel it more.

    Thanks for posting.


    1. Rumblestrip (Andrew),

      I am very pleased that you appreciate this day-by-day account of the events of the Spanish Civil War.

      I have mainly used the text from the chronology I produced for my book LA ULTIMA CRUZADA, with a few additional images added to enhance the visual aspect of each blog entry. There are going to be a flurry of additional entries over the next few days, followed by a bit of a gap.

      All the best,
