Both sides were Spanish, and one (the Nationalists) won. The Nationalists were Fascists aligned with Nazi Germany and Mussolini's Italy, who seized control of Spain from the Republicans, who received aid from the Soviet Union. The victory by the Nationalists installed Francisco Franco as the military ruler of Spain from 1939 to 1975.

Immediately before WWII, Spain was in the throes of civil war between Franco's Nationalists & the Republican (Communist) forces. Nazi Germany sent war materials to The Nationalists, while Stalin supported the Republicans. With the Nationalists being the victors, Franco resisted any & all involvement with The Axis or the Allied Powers. In short, Spain remained neutral.
