Coordinates : 4 7

A flat plain of short grass stretches out around you, broken by the occasional bush or tree. It is rather exposed out here, the grass being too short to hide in, and cover too sparse to hide behind.

It is currently daytime.

No rest for either the wicked or virtuous. Having pushed across the Castilian Plains to the outskirts of Brunete, there is no water to slake one's thirst, and no respite from the scorching heat of a July day. Ammo shortages having forced Vaclav to discard the better gun, the Corporal shoulders an old Chauchat once again, as he barks out, "Comrades! We have orders!"

Marchand is hunched down near a cluster of vines, waiting silently for the squad to recieve any orders or see any enemy. As the corporal calls out, the American lifts himself to look over and listens carefully.

Jase was in the rear with the gear, but the young American has caught up with the rest of his company. A stony expression crosses his face as he waits for those orders.

Moving over to where the corporal is, Crocetti makes his way in that direction, after having caught up with the others, just like Jase. "Sounds promising," he remarks, quietly.

Vladimir raises his eyebrow and starts to crawl towards Vaclav, he waits for the orders.

Konstantinov reemerges from…wherever it is the commissar lurks when he's not issuing propaganda messages. He still looks more ruffled than usual: red-faced and sweaty and generally hating everything about Brunete. He edges over to observe Vaclav and the men. He's likely aware of the orders already. But still. He wants to /watch/ the corporal issue them.

Vaclav wipes at his eyes to clear the sweat that stings his vision, and rumbles once the Company has gathered, "East of here, is town. Villanova del Canada-" the czech making a mangling of the spanish name. "Fascist detachment holds town. Threatens flank. We clear them. Now. Check munitions! Fall in!"

Jase goes through his ammo pouch quickly, making sure he's got all the rounds he'll need. Once he's done with that, he goes to fall into formation, rifle held carefully in his hands.

Marchand speaks up, "To the east?" and quickly turns to look that way, his gaze formerly directed towards Brunete to the south. "We should approach in more than just a single column. Any ideas, comrade corporal?"

Crocetti gets his gear checked rather quickly, before he nods a bit at Marchand's words, "From here and the south, or something like that?" the Italian suggests, quietly.

Vaclav frowns and answers curtly, "We advance in one, until fascist deployment seen. May need storm house to house. Want numbers if so." A slowly drawn breath. "If need split, Comrades Crocetti, Morris will move south to flank. Questions?" he prompts once.

"I always get sent to flank," Jase murmers under his breath. He doens't sound unhappy about that, however.

Vladimir shakes his head. "I am ready."

Marchand is holding a traditional Mauser M1893 rifle, ready. On his hip, though, is a new piece not previously seen on him before the battle to take this position. A Spanish-manufactured pistol. He frowns at the reply, but doesn't speak further. The frown remains while he draws up his gear to be ready to move.

Vaclav nods once, and barks out, "Comrades! Advance east!"

«Ground Combat» Vaclav moves East <E>.

Marchand advances, moving with the main body of the group but without showing any enthusiasm. The older man has his rifle lifted, ready to sight upon any enemy visible.

«Ground Combat» You notice Vladimir arrive at Plains.

Marchand mutters, "Town ahead. Buildings."

"I see a facist ahead as well," Jase says quietly, eyes scanning to the east, "At least one."

Konstantinov brings up the rear. Better to be properly inspiring, and remind the men of their mission. And keep himself safe. And shoot anyone who tries to run away.

Marchand nods too, "Rifleman. I see him." He draws down to a kneel, lifting the rifle.

Vladimir starts to crawl, he doesnt seem to be as fast as others but he is trying his best, he hrms.

Vaclav orders curtly, "Morris, Marchand- Open fire when ready. All others, with me. Advance, Comrades."

Crocetti nods a little bit, "Two," he remarks, before moving to get into a position to get a good shot off.

Marchand slowly nods, his eye fixed on the gunsights. It looks like he has a bead on the man.

Jase gets a bead on the man he sees as well, carefully holding his breath before he takes the shot.

William stabs the enemy in the left chest, going through the man's body. He savagely twists the blade of the sputtering man and pushes the man's corpse off his bayonet. Then he moves to engage the second member of the enemy machine gun team.

Vaclav is swinging wildly- the last swing had knocked a chunk of plaster from the wall, this deflected blow thudding with a *crack* into a wooden table; his temper clearly getting the better of him, until william ends the fight with a well placed bayonet. Rather perplexed at the attentions of the remaining rifleman, the corporal grips the gun and steps toward al'Tomiki

Marchand walks in from the west with the Commissar, Crocetti not too far behind. "The guy you knocked out back there tried to fire again. Comrade Vladimir made sure he didn't."

Vaclav steps up toward Konstantinov, and company, a nod to MArchand at the words. "Comrade Vladimir did his duty well then." Back to the russian, he rumbles, "Comrade Commissar, Villanove del Canada has been cleared." His right hand raised in salute with the words.

Marchand motions to William. "Let me have a look at that, comrade." pulling out his small first aid kit.

William stands next to the Comrade Corporal and tries his best to salute the approaching Kommissar.

Konstantinov hastily mops his sweaty brow with a handkerchief drawn from his uniform. Every muscle on his face, briefly, betrays a hatred of everything around him. Every scrap of Spain, whether they've taken it or not. But he manages to smooth that away and return Vaclav's salute. "Fine work, Comrades. Fine work."

William nods to Comrade Marchand and examines his wounds. He fumbles for the medical supplies in his rucksack.

Vladimir nods his head proudly.

Marchand frowns as he examines the soldier, "Your hands are pretty bad off, comrade. That leg's just a scratch." as he unrolls bandages.

Vaclav nods once, his own shoulder and chest rising and falling with deep breath as he barks out, deep cvoice echoing off the more distant walls, "K Company! Bullet count! Medics! Attend wounded!"

William nods to Marchand. "Bloody, and they already almost took my middle finger." He holds up his right hand, which has a bullet hole through and through the palm.

Crocetti has arrived.

Marchand :nods, wrapping a bandage around the worst wound, William's left hand, first.
Marchand leans to the other side, wrapping a bandage around William's right hand now too.

William hmms as the small nick on his left leg is okay…. but both his hands are bandaged by Comrade Marchand. "Thanks… I don't think I can do much shooting or stabbing now." He raises both of his hands, which are both heavily bandaged.

Marchand grunts, "Best I can do, my English friend. But it's stopped the bleeding. You need to be hauled back to Madrid, or a dressing station."

Jase seems to be completly unhurt, a status the young man used to take for granted. Not anymore.

Marchand walks up to the corporal after bandaging William. "Where do we camp now, comrade? Back at the main road towards Brunete?"

«Announcement!» Street to street, and House to House, Villaneuva de la Canada is cleared by the men of the International Brigades in bloody urban battle. While orders are handed down to make the secured village the base of operations for the later days' push on Brunete itself, there is no escaping the heat. An oversight in logistics means as well that for the rest of the day, there is no water for the weary soliders; only the orders that on the morrow, the offensive resumes.
