Camera pans walls of a Republican army base. Several statues stand on pillars between sandbagged fortifications. Barbed wire is seen in some locations. Camera pans down face of tall building showing shell holes in places. Sign next to elaborate entrance door refers to general mobilization. A Red Cross car displaying white flag rushes down empty street toward place where smoke is rising from rebel shelling. Another scene shows civilians running and one falling during a shelling attack. A shell explodes near the camera with black smoke billowing. The Red Cross car rushes to another location. City dwellers walk about near rubble from shelling. Boys look for shell fragments in the rubble. A woman holding a baby runs for cover. Another shell explodes nearby. Two civilians lie where they have fallen, victims of the shelling. (Narrator ascribes the shelling to German artillery.) A cyclist in uniform walks his bicycle through broken glass as he steps past the dead pair of victims.
