A period the Brothers come back to every so often- The Spanish Civil war gives us the opportunity to display the full spectrum of political views within our group.....and as i have said- I hold the correct ones- the others are just fascist bastards.
In this encounter battle, the Nationalists and the Republicans were advancing towards a town to capture the three bridges and halt the advance of the opposing force. What turned into a bloody stalemate was an enjoyable game as neither side managed to capture more than one bridge each. Time ran out- so neither side could declare victory!
