The Ionadàlban Civil War

The Ionadàlban Civil War was an intense conflict that lasted for 8 years (1934-1942) and affected the whole of Ionadàlba and Grum. After the Ionadàlban revolution of 1933 and the establishment of the nascent Republic of Álba, the country split into complex factions based on lnaduage and ethnic identity, ideology, religion and social class. This complexity was added to by the involvement of foreign combatants on both sides. The involvement (and non-involvement) of other nations played an important role in determining the final outcome of the war: victory for the fascist forces of Ionadàlba Mhòr and the Principality of Grum and defeat for the Republic and its Communist and Anarchist successors. Around 300,000 combatants and civilians lost their lives in the war.
