Meanwhile, secret peace talks which were being held in England between Dr. Juan Negrin and the Duke of Alba, Franco's ambassador, broke up on September 9 with no result as Franco insisted on an unconditional surrender.
On September 16, fifteen German planes bombed the port of Barcelona, damaging two British ships that were in the port.One bomb fell in a market place killing a number of civilians.31 people were killed and 120 were wounded during this air-raid.
On September 21, Dr. Juan Negrin announced in his speech to the League of Nations, that the withdrawal of the International Brigades from the combat zones would shortly begin. (On October 28, the first farewell parade of the International Brigades in Barcelona was attended by tens of thousands of grateful civilians.) In withdrawing these troops Negrin hoped that the international community would pressurise Germany and Italy to withdraw their supplies of men and arms to Franco.
On December 31, the city centre of Barcelona was bombed by the Nationalist air-force and, in desperation, Dr. Juan Negrin, the Spanish Prime Minister begged the United States to intervene, but without success, for the threat of a possible major war in Europe proved to be too much of a distraction and the threat of the Republic, if winning, becoming a Communist controlled state was an unsavory thought to the western democratic powers. (Republican politics had seen an marked increase in Communist influence since the outbreak of war, a direct result of the foreign intervention by the USSR.)

These fine shock troops owed their existence as such to Juan Negrin who had been the Government Minister responsible for Customs and Excise at the time of the Fascist uprising. Then the Carabineros were a small organisation attached to the Customs Department; but Negrin, impressed by their loyalty to the Government, had them expand into three full-strength divisions.
One of the Internationalists in the act of cleaning a gun, shot himself. He was buried with full revolutionary honours. His funeral I believe, provided the Authorities with an opportunity to stage a show of strength to the "Fifth Column" that was known to exist within the town.
Juan Negrin, a Socialist from the professions, was elected by the Cortes to fill the vacant chair, and he remained in office to the bitter end. History has to regard Prime Minister Juan Negrin as a heroic figure, and a worthy leader of the Spaniards who fought so long and so well in Freedom's battle.
It appeared that the plan of battle was for his left wing, the XX International Battalion, to contain the enemy on Granja whilst his center, a fresh Railway Battalion, and his right wing, the Catalan Carabineros (the sons of Negrin), would carry out an encirclement of the hill fort.
