內容簡介 "Commander", I cried out to Kozietulski, "the Emperor orders you to commence the charge at once " Montbrun made an exclamation and a gesture of astonishment, without daring to contradict me. Pir however declared: "It is impossible." (Major de S gur, battle participant and memorialist.) This booklet is the English translation of a French-Russian analysis of the Battle of Somosierra. It provides the Napoleonic enthusiast with insights on the men involved, an overview of the battlefield and eyewitness accounts. The famous charge carried out by the Polish Light Cavalry Regiment of the Guard is also put into perspective and makes interesting reading.
