Batman - The Long Halloween: Deluxe Edition (4K Ultra HD) (Blu-ray)
by Adam Tyner

FDR-New Deal liberals, American communists, and many of those concerned about the rise of fascism in Europe generally supported the Republicans in Spain, while American conservatives, particularly Catholics, including the Vatican leadership, supported the Nationalists led by Francisco Franco.
