Advanced Higher History Spanish Civil War Field of Study

The title of the Field of Study has been altered to reflect the period assessed and now becomes "The Spanish Civil War: Causes, Conflict and Consequences 1923-1945." The summary descriptor now includes reference to the period 1923-1931, highlighting the potential for an exam question based on this period which does not necessarily refer to the fall of the monarchy in 1931. The title now also allows for evidence of the consequences of Franco's victory to be fully credited. The timescale is solely extended for this purpose and any question relating to the period 1939-1945 would still be focused on the consequences of Franco's victory. The Fall of the Monarchy now becomes an italicised area, as does the extent of comparative rifts within The New Republic. The Bienio Negro is no longer italicised although under this section, the Revolt in Asturias remains italicised.
