GARCIA FERRANDIS, X.. Health coverage for a retreating army: a Medical Captain's action during the Maestrazgo campaign (April-July 1938). Sanid. Mil. [online]. 2012, vol.68, n.3, pp.187-192. ISSN 1887-8571.

Precedents and purposes: After Franco's troops entered the city of Teruel in February 1938, the Maneuver Army, one of the best prepared in the Republican Popular Army, started its progressive retreat. The rapid advance of national troops toward the Mediterranean sea marked the military health care characteristics. This paper analyses the Maneuver Army's Health during its retreat along the Maestrazgo of Castellón, which took place between April and June 1938 in the context of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). Material and method: We have used a great historic value source, a former Republican Army Medical Captain's oral testimony. Historical data have been appropriately collaborated and complemented by secondary bibliographical sources. Likewise, documents from the Archives of the Provincial Council of Valencia have been consulted. Results: High mobility and ubiquity characterized medical classification posts and frontline Republican hospitals during the Maestrazgo campaign, because enemy's onslaught made these health infrastructure to retreat rapidly. Conclusions: A relation between war front's instability and military health characteristics is established.
