The Redcoat History Podcast

The Peninsular War: Part 1, The Battle of Rolica

April 3, 2020

Welcome to a new season of The Redcoat History Podcast. In season three we will be taking a deep dive into the Peninsular war – Yes, that’s right, think Richard Sharpe and the South Essex. It is a conflict that saw the Duke of Wellington rise to fame and the development of arguably the greatest and most successful British army to ever take the field.

In this, the first, episode we meet Sir Arthur Wellesley (soon to become the Duke of Wellington) and have ringside seats as he takes on the all-conquering French army at Rolica...Will he emerge victoriously or will the British be thrown back into the Atlantic ocean?
