¡Viva España! War to the knife raged in the Iberian Peninsular between France and Spain from 1808 to 1814. Armies drawn from all across Europe contented on the battlefields, siege lines and in countless guerrilla skirmishes. Napoleon called the war his Spanish ulcer. Unlike most of Europe, despite setback after setback Spain never surrendered to the Corsican ogre. The following list gives the wargamer a wide variety of titles to choose from to learn more about this facet of the Napoleonic wars. Your views, comments and additions are more than welcome.

"Die-Hard 57th, Die-Hard" ... "the hardest fought battle of the Peninsular war" ---Beresford's Anglo-Portugese and Blake's Spanish defeat Marshal Soult's French in a meatgrinder from Clash of Arms.Jose Zayas' Guardias Espanoles, Walloon Guard and Irlanda go toe to toe with assaulting French columns as Polish lancers charge out of a rainstorm to smash English infantry. The box says ideal for solo play! FYI, quite a few new titles on Albuera are appearing on Amazon.

Wellington's masterpiece. One of SIMTAC's "Batallas de la Guerra de la Independencia" series simulating the defeat of Marmont (Massena's successor) at Salamanca. The museum curator shocked at seeing an American (not English) military historian gave me a musket ball from the battlefield! Check out the beautifully done counters with regimental colored no less!
