I'm currently studying Spanish Civil War. It seems that it was a tradition, that the military had power to intervene politics in Spain, at least before the establishment of Second Spanish Republic.

Also, since the removal of some military generals was one cause of the military coup in 1936, I think this means the incumbent political party didn't have enough control over the military.

    In particular, it does not appear that your post contains any actual questions. My suggestion would be start by reading this Wikipedia article on the history of Spain (say, the period starting after the Napoleonic Wars). – Moishe Kohan Feb 12 at 11:09
