Narrative of the Siege of ZaragozaeBook - 2013
The two sieges of Zaragoza in 1808 and 1809 during the Peninsular War were proverbially bitter, as the patriotic fervour encountered invading the French was unknown during their campaigns in other parts of Europe. This was to be the "guerra al cuchillo", the war of the Spanish Guerilla, impassioned to save their king and homeland, and the determined professional and undefeated French armies. In this short and valuable book, the story of the first siege is brought into full life in English by the contemporary author Charles Vaughan.
