An uplifting poster for a glider competition in Catalonia: remarkable, in part, because of the date: 1938, during the Spanish Civil War. Catalonia managed to hold on to its independence for more than two years. But without air support, Catalonia's Popular Army was defeated at the Battle of the Ebro, and Catalonia's fall was assured. The event was to have taken place during the critical days of the Battle of the Ebro.
