Division Azul

Fielding the Spanish Blue division in Flames Of War

The Spanish volunteers of the Blue Division (so named because of the blue shirts of the Falangist Party Militia worn by many of its men) fought on the Eastern Front alongside the Germans. This division was formed from volunteers in Spain before being sent to Germany for accelerated training and then on to German Army Group North on the Eastern Front.

Spanish Blue Division History…

The Spanish troops used German uniforms and equipment, thus the Blue division is adequately represented by Mid-war German Grenadier model range. The only visible difference being their yellow and red national shield worn on the helmet right and the right upper arm.

We have created a Mid-war Intelligence Briefing for fielding a Spanish Azul (Blue) Division Grenadierkompanie.
