After the Games

Part of the Mega Event Planning book series (MEGAEP)


Although the Popular Olympics never occurred, in a sense they met many of their goals. The coup which launched the civil war failed in Barcelona, but it succeeded in much of the rest of Spain, and for many of the dedicated anti-fascists of the Popular Olympics, this provided a long-awaited chance to take up arms against their old foe. This chapter traces the national and individual contributions to the International Brigades that have their roots in the Popular Olympics.
