Battle of Ocana: The Army of Spain's Greatest Victory

Although the battle of Ocana is without doubt the Army of Spain's greatest defeat, until 2006 there was no history book covering this dramatic event. Now, with recently released archive material, this glorious battle between France and Spain can be fully recorded. The battle of Ocana (Toledo) took place on November 19, 1809 between the Spanish troops of the Ejercito del Centro (Army of the Center), under General Areizaga, and the French army led by the king, Jose I, with Jean-de-Dieu Soult as Major General. The battle finished with the Spanish defeat and ended the Spanish campaign against Napoleon's army. This book fully examines the battle, with a complete chronology, order of battle, illustrations, maps and strategic analysis. THIS BOOK IS IN ENGLISH.
