In the latest episode of Season 3 of The Redcoat History Podcast, we examine the Battle of Busacco…fought in Portugal on the 27th September 1810. The battle is important for many reasons – not least of which as it marked the coming of age of the newly reorganized and re-equipped Portuguese army which would achieve so much throughout the rest of the Peninsular war. March in the ranks and sit alongside Wellington as he decides when and how to try and stop the third French invasion of Portugal – will he be successful or will Marshal Massena’s army of veterans brush the Redcoats aside and advance to Lisbon?
