    Default Looking for Websites about the Peninsular War (Guerillas in Particular)

    Title says it all.

    I'm also looking for a good timeline of the War, from the French invasion to the offense over the Pyrenese.

    A list and description of some battles, it doesn't mention the ones on France like Toulouse and as Oman is a source it;s bound to be rather pro British (for a change lol)Nor any Spanish battles mentioned

    http://www.peninsularwar.org/penwar_e.htm

    More detail on Spanish here
    http://www.georgianindex.net/peninsu...towardWar.html

    Google Spanish guerrillas Peninsula War gives a lot of sites
    unfortunately most of the detail on Spanish battles and guerrillas is on Spanish language sites
    http://www.1808-1814.org/batallas/batablon.html
    http://www.1808-1814.org/articulos/articulos.html

    This one is not too bad : http://www.history.com/topics/peninsular-war

    I also found this article pretty interesting :
    http://www.historytoday.com/MainArticle.aspx?m=13156&amid=13156

    Not so much a timeline but useful information on Guerrillas.

    Other than Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_...urther_reading I suggest you look at http://www.napoleon-series.org/milit...enmemoirs.html which is the translation of an anonymous eyewitness account from the Spanish side. From the French side see Fregate Capitan Baste's memoirs at http://www.napoleon-series.org/milit...e/c_baste1.htm - Baste was in charge of the Marins de la Garde.

    Reasonable descriptions can be found Chapter 4 The battle of Bailen in "Battle studies in The Peninsula" by Richard Partridge & Michael Oliver which also has a reasonale order of battle; and Chapter 2 Reaping the Whirlwind in David Gates' "The Spanish Ulcer" .
