SEPTEMBER I – INSURGENTS – Failed attack in the mountains southeast of Gijon both stalled the drive to Santander and consumed precious attack supply. Further south a thrust from Linares pushed the rabble of Loyalist forces back while also consuming supply. More rail destruction in Western Catalonia and additional clean up in Andalusia capped the turn. Vigo falls securing the last city in Galicia for the rebels and Gaudix is recaptured. A line of regiments screens Zaragoza in hopes that Loyalist forces in Catalonia will be slowed down by track destruction.
SEPTEMBER I – LOYALIST – Another major victory for the real Spain! Three regiments destroyed near the Ebro river that totally removed any threat to the advances (yes, hoping for a dual advance before Mud) to Zaragoza and Valencia. Lines contracted and reinforced in Basque territory and a sortie from San Sebastian removed an Insurgent security regiment prowling outside the city limits. Rail communications with the stack in Estremadura reestablished and the supported regiment from Mahon shipped and then forwarded to keep Teruel forces at bay.
SEPTEMBER I – LOYALISTS SEPTEMBER II – INSURGENTS – Finally some progress in Santander with a DR result and no available hex in which to retreat. A few more of these and that Gobernito is toast. In the South spread out available forces to ensure no incursions into Andalucía (except Almeria still in Loyalist hands). Fort completion in Zaragoza and shuttling supplies to jump off places in southwestern Castilla la Nueva and northern Estremadura.
SEPTEMBER II – LOYALISTS – – With Barcelona cleared of Fascist elements all forces surge towards both Zaragoza and Valencia. Hope the weather holds long enough to secure both cities next month. They could use some artillery as the only thing keeping their lines in place is Insurgent attack supply problems. The Anarchists shirk their duties during the attack on Valencia and odds reduced to 2:1 – 2. Attack canceled. On-going shoring up the line takes place as best as possible in Castilla la Nueva.
