Vitoria 1813

Vitoria Map 2

The Battle of Vitoria on 21 June 1813 is my first battle project for The Dining Table Napoleon. For those interested in this important battle here are some resources. The orders of battle are the only real attempt I have seen to provide brigade strengths and artillery composition as they were on the day – though this inevitably involves some guesswork, triangulating various sources before and after the event. For the French I have also shown my estimates of the regimental strengths.

  1. What a great site, thank you. I’m not a gamer, I’m a historical novelist and am just about to tackle Vitoria, was looking for good maps when I found your site. This is really useful and will save me some work. You’re right in that historians – and novelists – tend to neglect the last year or so of the Peninsular War. I’ve no idea why because it’s fascinating. I hope you carry on with this and will keep an eye out for any writeups of other battles.
