More than eighty years have passed since the end of the Spanish Civil War. During this time, several books were written detailing the background, the events and the participants of the conflict. Understandably, in Hungary, special attention was paid to Hungarian volunteers fighting among the ranks of International Brigades, so their history was examined in many different types of work. At the same time, the French archival resources were not available for a long time in connection with the role of Hungarian volunteers of the French army who were kept in internment camps in France. Fortunately, this circumstance has changed over the last few years, so today we can try to shed light on the further military role of Hungarian veterans of the International Brigades in France. Surprisingly, few of the Hungarian veterans of the Spanish Civil War interned in France were among the two thousand Hungarians who served in the French armed forces during 1939–40. According to the available data, this fact was mainly due to the rapid change of the political climate in the second half of 1939, which deterred the vast majority of Hungarians who were otherwise ready to fight the Germans.
