This memoir provides an eyewitness account of several of the actions of the 1808 Andalusian campaign, culminating in the battle of Baílen and the capitulation of Dupont’s entire army. Very little material has hitherto been available in English dealing with this campaign-thus the reader can expect to discover fresh details and new insights not available in the general histories of the Peninsular War.
