Notes
Content: Picture caption: "Zum Monatsende unternahm der Führer eine größere Reise, die die diplomatische Aktivität Deutschlands der ganzen Welt beweis. An der Französisch-Spanischen Grenze traf er zu einer Aussprache mit dem Spanischen Staatschef General Franco zusammen."
Content: All through the war, Hitler tried unsuccessfully to get Franco to join the Axis as a full partner. While sympathetic to his fellow fascists, the Spanish dictator remained aloof from an actual alliance or military commitment (other than the token "Blue Division" sent to fight alongside the Germans and Italians in Russia).
