Context:

The Joint Brigade 153 stems from the militarization of the anarchist column "Land and Freedom" in June, 1937. Integrated into the 24th Divison of the XII Corps of the Eastern Army, this brigade's operational centre was situated in Caspe (Zaragoza). It took part in the Battle of Belchite.

The Brigade was annihilated by the Aragonese nationalist army and its remainders were integrated into the 30th Division of the XI Army Corps. It participated in the Battle of Segre. The nationalist attack on Catalonia led to the birgade's gradual receding from Artesa de Segre (Lleida) to Santa Coloma de Queralt (Tarragona). Its last novelty was the appointment of the sector of Vic (Barcelona) at the end of January, 1939.
