Featured battle : Rio Gebora

Part of The French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars

Date : 19 February 1811

An utterly incompetent handling of his troops by the Spanish commander, Mendizabal, led to this defeat by a force half the size of his own. Most ofhis cavalry fled the field leaving the flank of his infantry exposed to the French cavalry attack. Many of the Spaniards fled into Badajoz and many others fled over the border to Portugal. This defeat sealed the fate of Badajoz.
