NEW BOOK - The Madrid Uprising 1808

On 2 May 1808 the Spanish capital of Mardrid erupted into savage violence. The citizens of Madrid had had enough of the French army in thier city and were rising up to throw them out. Artillery blasted down narrow streets, cavalry charged across the plazas and infantry slaughtered each other in the narrow alleys. The Peninsular War had begun.

This book forms part of the Bretwalda Battles series on The Peninsular War.

The book outlines the background to the Peninsular War. It then analyses the careers of the commanders and explains the tactics and weapons of the time together with any differences between the practices of the armies involved in the battle. The book then describes the action in detail before moving on to outline events after the battle.

With 25,000 words and numerous illustrations this book is a definitive account of the battle.

Written by a military author of great experience, this book explains the way battles were fought two centuries ago and explains the course of the action in an accessible but authoritative style.
