Designer: Mike Faulkner
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The XVth found that when they moved to an assigned area, the Nationalist forces got there before them. Elements of the Mackenzie-Papineau Battalion and the Abraham Lincoln Battalion, XVth International Brigade, numbering less than 500 effectives, made it to the city of Caspe. The brigade commander, Dave Doran had the men dig trenches that crossed Cemetery Hill on the edge of town. On the 17th, Nationalist forces attacked Caspe. Tanks of the Condor Legion swung around the town while infantry of the Navarre Brigades captured Cemetery Hill. The fighting was desperate. Republican tanks countered the Condor Legion and Colonel Smith, commander of the Mac-Paps, organized a counterattack and retook the heights. During the fighting, Niilo Mäkelä, a legend in the Mac-Paps was mortally wounded by a mortar round. A square in the village of Capçanes was named after Mäkelä by his comrades.

2016-03-24(A) Kevin Killeen vs Chuck Dye Nationalist win
2016-03-23(A) Michael Rodgers vs Bruno L'Archeveque Republican winMy Nationalists were able to exploit a weakness in the Republican right flank to get into the town quickly. The MTR and MMG worked to keep the graveyard troops' heads down. My follow-on forces went mostly into the town. I was able to wipe out most of the at-start town republicans, but the Republican infantry reinforcements made it to the edge of the town. They pushed their way slowly in. On the last Nationalist turn, I had the three hexes required. On the last Republican turn, heavy firepower broke three units in one of the hexes to give a Republican victory.
2015-05-20(D) Jeff B vs Robert Zinselmeyer Republican winA highly exciting contest coming down to the last CC roll. The Nationalists were a force to be reckoned with in close quarters, but they were let down by their machine guns. Their heavy mortar was a powerful source of suppressive fire early but, after being frustrated by a lack of targets, turned its attention elsewhere and never regained its advantage after the Republican AFV reinforcements entered. This one seems highly replayable; I know I would gladly do so.
