Battle of Brunete, July 6, 1937Download nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Battle of Brunete, July 6, 1937

Description: The Abraham Lincoln Brigade marches to the front in the Battle of Brunete (July 6, 1937-July 25, 1937) during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). This battle was launched by Republican forces against Nationalist forces to blunt the Nationalist advance toward the capital of Madrid and to alleviate Nationalist pressure on the Northern front, where the industrial city of Bilbao had been captured on June 19, 1937 after a six-week siege by Nationalist forces and to allow Loyalists to flee that area. Loyalist forces initially made gains, capturing Brunete and pushing the Nationalists south, until the Republican forces were pushed back by heavy Nationalist counterattacks, aided by German tanks and the German Condor Legion of dive bombers. This Republican attack cost the Loyalists more than 25,000 men they could not replace (Nationalist casualties were at 17,000), as well as indispensible equipment and guns, and allowed the stronger Nationalists to capture most of the North. The attack had been planned to prove (unsuccessfully) to France that the Republican Loyalists had the strength to counterattack the Nationalists and thus convince France to open its borders to allow for a flow of military aid to the Second Republic (1931-1939), as well as convince Russia to send more than the limited aid it had provided thus far.
