La Marina de Guerra Auxiliar de Euzkadi (1936-39) 2008


In 1998 the San Sebastián Naval Museum organised an exhibition, "Euzkadiko Gudontzidia. La Marina de Guerra Auxiliar de Euzkadi" [The Basque Country’s Auxiliary War Navy].

This was intended to tell the story of a very special naval corps created during the civil war to help the Republican Navy protect sea traffic and fishing operations. Assistance with the preparations for the exhibition was provided by Juan Pardo San Gil, a well-documented expert in this area, and also author of the book now reprinted by the Museum with several new photographs and some minor alterations.
