NotesImage 1: see LSE1356 for published cartoon. An 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. [Caption from Low's Cartoon History 1945-1953 by
