¡Arriba España! (Spain Arise!) including The Portable Spanish Civil War wargame rules

Watermarked PDF

When 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.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
