The Katyusha rockets come fast and heavy. They were blowing the tops off of the surrounding hills like some kind of hedge clippers gone wild . Making that classic sound like a monk seal’s mating call. Rocket after rocket slams into the hill top near Es Bordes. Our positions kept falling one by one and then it was on to the next hilltop.

Our fallback position was the Ridges to the West of Arros. The Reds were getting dangerously close to Vilac. The Reds were taking big losses but they were relentless in their advance and once they took ground they never gave it up.

Finally the Spanish were coming into their own and were becoming very good at making Ivan pay for every yard. They still haven’t mastered the art of taking ground but they sure could defend it. With over 50% of the forces were now Spanish. Unfortunately without the ability to make counter attacks it was not possible to us to keep our flanks.

Oh we could give them a bloody nose every once in a while but for the majority of the time we were making retrograde movements just to keep from getting surrounded. We are all wondering where were all the US troops? We heard that they were having some trouble with the corporations and trying to get them to make the switch back from civilian goods but we never thought the vets would let us down.

Eventually we were going to run out of mountain tops and then we were dead meat against all that Soviet armor and as everyone knows the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain.
