madrid against the invaders

The French came to Spain as allies, on the way to Portugal. First they occupied several strongholds. Then they called our kings Carlos IV and Fernando VII to Bayonne (France). The Spanish authorities continued to preach that they were friends against the British, because they dared not unleash the wrath of Napoleon, tyrant of Europe.

But the common people, the neighbors of Madrid, began to suspect. Why did an ally need 30,000 soldiers occupying the capital of Spain? It only took a spark to blow up the city, and the French raised the stakes taking the rest of the royal family away from Madrid. The people of Madrid would not allow it!

“Me han regalado una visita guiada al campo de batalla de los Arapiles, por medio de el Primer Edecán. ¡¡¡¡Ha sido realmente genial!!!!! Una vista con un autentico erudito por los campos donde ocurrió la batalla que se conservan perfectamente. Un acercamiento histórico para los más legos, donde te habla de las tácticas de la época (modos de lucha, armamento, dida a dia del soldado) y gran estrategia para los más avanzados (grandes movimientos de tropas, situación geoestratégica, manutención e intendencia de grandes ejercitos). Todo esto realizado por un gran conocedor y comunicador como ha sido Raúl (El Primer Edecán) al que se le puede preguntar y debatir, que hademostrado no solo ser un gran conocedor de la historia, si no un gran comunicador, que hace que la visita sea realmente apasionante.Si teneis oportunidad mirad su blog y animaros a contactar con el y hacer la visita.!!!!! De lo mejor que he hecho¡¡¡¡¡¡”
