APRIL I – INSURGENTS – Mud/Clear – Seizure of the hex immediately west of San Sebastian spells doom for that Gobernito as the Basque territory is now split in two isolating a 6 brigades in a pocket and leaving only 1 2-3-4* and a handful of brigades around San Sebastian. In the south the line in Castilla is reinforced and despite the clear weather Franco decides to wait until after things are finally settled up north to make any further moves there.
APRIL I – LOYALISTS – In a surprise move a massive 3 corps attack captures Alcazar de San Juan, albeit at the loss of 2 divisions. Now 3 divisions and an armored brigade stack sit on the vital rail junction. An International division comes into being southeast of Madrid and a corps pushes north from Teurel. All Basque forces that can move retreat into San Sebastian forming a corps with a defensive strength of 13, including city garrison.
APRIL II – INSURGENTS – Clear/Clear – Goodish news and baddish news. San Sebastian falls but with a loss of 13 attack points in the Ex result; the attempt to take back Alcazar with a 3:1 – 1 attack results in an AR. Gaping hole in the line through which, no doubt, about a dozen Loyalist divisions nearby can exploit and/or assail the 10th Corps and widen the life line to Madrid.
APRIL II – LOYALISTS – Half the Basque forces in the pocket quit and go home. In Castilla influx of divisions and additional forces to capitalize on Insurgent AR result yields 3 more hexes of that province. Another International division built and more creeping up the valley north of Teurel.
