History:

During the Civil War, the headquarters of the Generalissimo was embodied by a group of tactical and logistical authorities, namely, the staff of the General Franco, who played the role of the Paramount Chief of Nationalist Forces of Land, Sea and Air. Formerly based in Salamanca and then in Burgos, the headquarters occasionally transformed into a mobile office. The latter made use of several vehicles, which allowed for long and complex journeys, as well as for an infrastructure of communication equipped for giving and receiving any kind of information. Although the said Head Office underwent some minor changes and modifications during the dispute, the general scheme remained almost untouched during the Civil War.
