What was one reason why the Spanish Civil War was called a dress rehearsal for World War 2?

I can think of two reasons. 1) Communism and Democracy allied to fight against Fascism and Naziism as they would later do in World War 2. And 2), tanks and military aircraft along with the tactics of mobile warfare were tested in Spain before WW2.

Spanish civil war was a rehearsal for many techniques that were in World War 2?

Yes, it has certainly been viewed in that way. The lessons of World War 1 were learned more quickly by some nations than others. Mobility was replacing the static defense. The airplane and the tank were improving in both their technology and tactical employment. Military techniques practiced on a primitive level in the Spanish Civil War were used more widely and effectively in World War 2. I have heard from multiple sources that the Spanish Civil War was a rehearsal for World War 2, and I think that this statement has much validity.

What was the spanish civil war considered a dress rehearsal for?

Likely World War II, where the Germans (who aided the Nationalists, or fascists) again fought the Russians (who aided the Republicans, representing socialism). But it was also prescient of the Cold War, because the US, Britain, and France withheld and/or embargoed aid to the Spanish Republic, because it included communist factions. In World War II, only the strategic advantage of a two-front war prompted extensive Allied military aid to the Soviet Union.

What was the impact that U Boats had on world war 1?

1. Excellent way to win land battles; by stopping them before they even got there! But Germany failed to do that. (But they were on the right track). 2. This was Britain's dress rehearsal for WWII's battle of the Atlantic. Why they didn't learn from it is anyone's guess.
