After the famous Victory at Salamanca in July 1812, Wellington occupied Madrid. At this point, he seemed to lose his magic touch. In this episode, I am joined by historians Charles Esdaile and Mark Thompson to learn the full story behind the campaign known as “Wellington’s worst scrape”. 

Below is the YouTube video and here it can be listened to on Apple Podcasts.
