History since the 1940s[edit | edit source]

The Coup of '43[edit | edit source]

By the start of World War Two, Argentina was nearing the end of the "Infamous Decade ", period which started with a military coup followed by the electoral domination of alliance of conservative and centrist political leaders called the Concordancia . Initially Argentine declare neutrality in the conflict despite the government's strong ties with the British. However the people were more divided with most spilt between being pro-Allies or pro-neutrality. There was a minority of those who were Pro-Axis, but some of them were in high positions within the Argentine military. This stance of some high-ranking officer combined with declining relationship with the government made a coup almost inevitable.

In the early summer of 1943, the trigger was lit when president Ramon Castillo demanded that the minister of war General Pedro Pablo Ramírez, resigned. Castillo demanded this after discovering Ramírez was meeting with leaders of the Radical Civic Union to discuss him running for president. In response to this resignation demand General Ramírez meet with General Arturo Rawson to support his society of like-minded officers called the Grupo de Oficiales Unidos is launching a coup against the government.

The coup itself occurred with little resistance and on June 4, General Rawson declared himself president in a move to outmaneuver General Ramirez. However Rawson would be forced to resigned a couple of day later when he cabinet proposal was rejected.

Following Rawson's resignation, General Ramirez declare himself president. Ramirez would initially focus on suppressing pro-Allies organizations and placing trade unions directly under state control. A couple of months into his reign, Ramirez would place a young officer named Juan Domingo Perón as his Minister of Labor and Social Security.
