Hold back, Napoleon!

BRAVE: The episode was found in William James’ 1826 book “The Great Britain Naval History.”

BRITISH and French troops ‘fought’ in Benidorm’s Poniente Beach in a recreation of a battle dated back 200 years. In 1812, during the Spanish Independence War against the occupancy by Napoleon’s France, allied British troops tried to take hold of the town, which had gone under French control. Although the British soldiers lost, the battle was not really determining during the war. The recreation was enacted by members of the Valencia Napoleonic Association, which studies historical events in the region during the Napoleon era.
