Is there historical reference to anarchist having organized an army?

+1 vote
I am a student having concerns about the anarchist in the Spanish civil war being unable to organize an effective army against the nationalist. Does anarchist theory provide historical lessons for the centralized management of an army?
Another question is with the understanding that the Spanish anarchist used labor credit vouchers for goods and services within the collective. However why did they need to go to the banks for cash? This seems to have been the Achilles heel in the extortion of the means of production by the Republicans.
Thanks for comments and advice.
