1808 - 1811
After Napoleon replaced the Spanish King with his brother Joseph
in 1808, he had to send troops into Spain and Portugal to suppress
the rebellions. However, British forces (red) landed near Lisbon
and defeated the French forces there. The defeat caused the French
(green) to retreat back into Spain. Although there were several
attempts, the French never conquered Portugal again.
1812 - 1814
After being on the defensive, Wellington went on the offensive.
He continued to push into Spain until he reached the French border,
where he met heavy resistance until Napoleon abdicated in 1814 ending
the Peninsular War.
The map shows the disastrous invasion of Russia. The tan line is
the invasion route; the black line is the retreat route. The thicker
the line, the more troops it represents. There is also a chart of
the temperature during the invasion.
The Battle of Waterloo
June 18, 1815
A very nice plan of the Battle of Waterloo. During the battle,
the French had managed to push the British back. However, the Prussians
arrived on the side of the French to reinforce the British.
