Description
By early 1811, Napoleon Bonaparte had overrun most of Spain, and his brother Joseph sat on the throne in Madridóbut the Spanish government had taken refuge in the fortress-port of Cadiz, refusing to admit that Spain had been conquered; with a British army under Sir Thomas Graham helping to defend Cadiz, the Spanish hoped to break the French siege of the city. Military historians John Grehan and Martin Mace here examine a largely forgotten yet crucial campaign on the southwest coast of Spain, in which Graham's forces were thrown against the French in a reckless gamble: If the battle was won, the siege would be lifted; if not, Cadiz would be defenseless, leaving the Spanish government at the mercy of the invaders.
