• Short Summary

    Scenes of Franco's advance through the bomb-battered towns and valleys of Spain.

  • Description

    Titles read: "FRANCO'S ADVANCE - Spanish Governments' [sic] preparations".

    Spain.

    Several shots of young men who are being trained as soldiers in a last stand against General Franco's advance marching through towns and carrying banners.

    Franco's army are seen advancing through the valleys on foot, in tanks and in aeroplanes. Soldiers operate large artillery guns. In battered and bombed towns, soldiers bring people out of their houses, but not in an overtly threatening way - one carries a child in his arms. Soldiers march along a road.

    Note: for search purposes - Spanish Civil War.
