NotesAn Anglo-French-American statement on Spain, issued with captured German documents, revealed that in June 1940 Franco promised both Hitler and Mussolini to join their side in the war on condition that Spain received Gibraltar, French Morocco and part of Algeria. The US asked France and Britain to join in offering help to any new government in Spain that would displace Franco's regime, which was described in France as a danger to peace. Franco calculated that his critics, Bidault, Bevin and Byrnes, already had their hands full and without interrupting a new list of political executions made a rude noise.
