As Europe began to smolder with the rise to power of fascism in Hitler & Mussolini, tensions quickly came to a boil in the Spanish peninsula between the Republican and Nationalist forces. From July 1936 to April 1939 war would ravage the country and many tens of thousands would loose their lives. For several countries this would be a dress rehearsal for the coming conflict of WWII, and for the world it would be a small taste of the horrors to come.
Squad Battles: Spanish Civil War gives you the opportunity to command the forces involved fighting in the streets of Madrid and the countryside of Alto de Leon or Somosierra Pass. The fate of the Republic is in your hands!
This game of Squad Battles focuses on the Battle for Madrid, with all its initial staging, after the Army of Africa is transported onto the mainland and slowly advances towards Madrid to connect with the nationalist forces coming from the North.

It presents the gamer with a wide spectrum of battlefields and of different troop organizations, from the early columns to the later armies.
