Teniente General Miaja was head of the Junta de Defensa de Madrid in 1936 credited with preventing the fall of the city to the Nationalist.

He wears the 1936 regulation uniform of the Popular Army with trousers and shoes. Tentiente Coronel Vladimir Copic was a Jugoslav Communist based in Moscow at the outbreak of the Civil War. He was originally Political Commisar of 15th Brigade but was promoted and given command at Jarama in February 1937. He commanded XV Brigade until April 1938 when he was recalled to Moscow, He was executed during the purges in 1939. Copic wears the 1936 regulation uniform with breeches and boots. His coat is a non-regulation black leather one. Franco wears the regulation uniform of the Spanish army, which the National army continued to use, with capote manta with fur collar. A contemporary of Franco, Coronel Juan Yague was a supporter of the Falange. At the outbreak of war he was serving in the EjÚrcito de ┴frica, in command of the 2nd Bandera of the Spanish Legion. He commanded a column advancing on Madrid and was responsible for the execution at least 4000 Republican military and civilian prisoners at Badajoz than earned him the epithet of The Butcher of Badajoz.

He was replaced in December 1938. Roatta is wearing the regulation grey-green uniform ordinaria of the CTV with black beret of the Camice Nere as he would have appeared at Guadalajara.
