¡Arriba España! (Spain Arise!) Including The Portable Spanish Civil War Wargame Rules

When the first edition of these rules was published in 1989, Spanish Civil War wargaming was very much a minority interest within the hobby. Since then that interest has grown, and wargame design has evolved. This edition includes a slightly revised and re-typeset version of the original text, and a whole new section that contains a new set of Spanish Civil War wargame rules from the Portable Wargame stable. It also includes a number of scenarios that wargamers can use and adapt.

The book is divided into two parts, and includes eleven chapters as well as list of useful resources.
