  • The news of Wellington s momentous victory at Vitoria on 21 June 1813 reached London in early July The celebration spawned an expectation of a rapid conclusion to events in the Peninsula His Majesty s Government gave authority for Wellington to invade France and made noises and plans for the redeployment of the Peninsular Army in support of Russia and Prussia WellingtonThe news of Wellington s momentous victory at Vitoria on 21 June 1813 reached London in early July The celebration spawned an expectation of a rapid conclusion to events in the Peninsula His Majesty s Government gave authority for Wellington to invade France and made noises and plans for the redeployment of the Peninsular Army in support of Russia and Prussia Wellington, however, did not see things in quite the same way His army was worn out and there remained sizeable French forces in Spain, so what followed had to be a carefully thought out and planned campaign.The invasion of France is a complicated aspect of the culmination of the War in Iberia indeed many historians consider the invasion and subsequent operations in southern France as separate from the Peninsular War as a whole The preliminaries include Wellington s need to capture Pamplona and San Sebastian prior to the invasion and Soult s attempts to relieve both garrisons resulting in the Battle of the Pyrenees July August and San Marcial late August respectively.The invasion itself commenced with the daring Allied crossing of the Bidassoa estuary in early October 1813 and was followed by an operational pause prior to the Battle of Nivelle in November, another pause to re group and the subsequent offensives on the River Nive and the Battle of St Pierre This phase, and ipso facto the invasion, was complete by mid December 1813 Finally, the subsequent operations, which commenced early in 1814, provided the aftermath to the invasion and the conclusion to the Peninsular War These actions focus primarily on the investment of Bayonne and the pursuit of Soult s army east, and include the battles and engagements at Garris, Orthez, Aire, Tarbes and the final showdown at Toulouse in April 1814.

  • One of the Osprey campaign books that show what is possible in the format: good mix of maps, illustrations, photographs of the battlefield and drawings. The account of events is solid, but lacks a deeper analysis.Weak point, as so often, remains the lack of sources and insight into Britain’s allies. Not even one quote to illustrate what it was like for a Spaniard to finally drive the French from his homeland or for a Portuguese what it meant to fight a war which was no longer directly protecti [...]
