Spanish Civil War

The SCW was a conflict between the Republican government, supported by the left wing political parties; and the conservative forces, mainly the Armed Forces, as a result of years of tensions and extremist policies by different governments in Spain. For three years both sides developed their own military and political agendas, fighting some of the most famous battles of the 20th Century, like Madrid, Guadalajara or the Battle of the Ebro River. Infantry waving flags, colourful militias, cavalry against tanks and defensive positions, this conflict is a mix of both World Wars with the lethal participation of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and Stalinist Russia.
