Jarama BattlefieldvVisit

This February is the 76th Anniversary of the Jarama Battle a major and bloody encounter of the Spanish Civil War in the fight for Madrid and the first test for the recently created Republican Popular Army. This weekend the Asociación Tajar has organised a number of events including a couple of very interesting guided tours to the battlefield. I signed up with my son and we are eagerly waiting Saturday to arrive... and hopefully that the rain falling these past three days will give us some rest during the weekend.

Warming up for our visit,  I leave you now with this famous contemporary tune sung by the members of the Lincoln Brigade and also adopted by the British Battalion of the International Brigades


  1. Otro aniversario de nuestra Historia que pasará sin pena ni gloria...

    Siempre me ha llamado mucho la atención esta batalla.

    Un saludo.

    1. Hace un año aproximadamente, me puse a trabajar en una serie de escenarios encadenados para otro reglamento de TooFatLardies (Troops, Weapons and Tactics) pero como siempre acabó en un cajón. Lo debería retormar. Hay un libro de Jesús González de Miguel que es muy útil para jugar escenarios skirmish
