This documentary tells of the struggles during the Spanish Civil War. It deals with the war at different levels: from the political level, at the ground military level focusing on battles in Madrid and the road from Madrid to Valencia, and at the support level. With the latter, a key project was building an irrigation system for an agricultural field near Fuentedueña so that food could be grown to feed the soldiers. Written by

Orson Welles, Narrator
You stand in line for food all day to buy food for supper. Sometime the food runs out before you reach the door. Sometime a shell falls near the line. And at home they wait and wait and no one brings back anything for supper.
