Example text

The Generalísimo replied immediately with a telegram which stressed the existence of a small-arms factory in Guernica and stated that ‘Units of our front line requested the air force to bomb the crossroads, a request fulfilled by German and Italian aircraft, and because of poor visibility caused by smoke and clouds of dust, bombs hit the town. Therefore it is not possible to permit an investigation. The reds took advantage of the bombing to set fire to the town. ’ 58 What was most striking, apart from the admission that the raid was requested by the Spaniards, was the lack of any suggestion that the German local command took independent initiatives or of any reproach for the scale of the bombing.

64 Even if the bombing was not undertaken at the specific request of, but merely tolerated by, the rebel high command in order to destroy Basque morale and undermine the defence of Bilbao, it would make little difference to Franco’s overall responsibility. The Condor Legion was in Spain at his request and Sperrle was directly subordinate to him. The only issue still debatable is the level of Franco’s detailed liaison with Sperrle. The bombing of Guernica was not unique but formed part of the consistent policy of air/ground co-operation elaborated since late March by Vigón and Richthofen.

Guernica was not a military objective. A factory producing war material lay outside the town and was untouched. So were two barracks some distance from the town. The town lay far behind the lines. The object of the bombardment was seemingly the demoralization of the civil population and the destruction of the cradle of the Basque race. Every fact bears out this appreciation, beginning with the day when the deed was done. Monday was the customary market day in Guernica for the country round. , when the market was full and peasants were still coming in, the church bell rang the alarm for approaching aeroplanes, and the population sought refuge in cellars and in the dugouts prepared following the bombing of Durango on March 31st, which opened General Mola’s offensive in the north.
