The path to victory

When the French took Valencia on January 9, 1812, many thought that the war was over.

But, at the other end of the country, Lord Wellington arrived that same day before the walls of Ciudad Rodrigo ready to start a path that, a year and a half later, would expel Napoleon’s troops from Spain.

In order to do this, he had to first take the city, with its walls and its fortified convents, before almost 2,000 French soldiers who were very aware of the importance of their mission.

If they failed, the way was opened and the threat of losing all of Old Castile and Madrid. It was not going to be easy…
