Etonnant, non … mais souvenir du nom donné, dans une de nos principales luttes, à une unité de l’armée républicaine espagnole. Alors, nous faisons une petite place à cet article sur le blog.
Posted by despertaferro on 11 Jul 2015, 17:00 This amazing and rare unit is going to reinforce my SCW Republican Army. They are mostly metal figures from the Catalan manufacturer Minairons; resin vehicles also from Minarons and a few plastic figures from BUM to bulk up numbers. These wonderful figures represent one of the female battalions that fight against Franco’s fascists during the Spanish Civil War. The vehicles are a Ford AA ambulance and a couple of “Autoametralladora Bilbao”. This Spanish manufactured armored vehicle was intended just for police use before the war break up. Once the fight begun, they were pressed into military service with very little success, being his armor too thin to protect the crew from anything but small arms fire.Like most part of the military units of the Republican Army, this battalion has taken his name from some important revolutionary character of the beginning of the XX century. With Karl Liebknecht, Rosa Luxemburg was a communist leader that died in Berlin in 1919 murdered by Freicorps members during the repression of the Spartacist Revolution. I hope you like them!
