The Keys of Spain – Siege Warfare is the next DVD in The Peninsular Collection from BHTV and Pen and Sword Digital. Building on events described in the Salamanca DVD, the BHTV team explain the siege warfare tactics
of the British and the French during the period and explore the build up and epic battles fought in Spain before
the Battle of Salamanca in July 1812.
This film explains the theory and practice of siege warfare in the Peninsula both from the perspective of the
defender and the attacker before covering the speedily conducted siege of Ciudad Rodrigo and the far more
severe test at Badajoz, with its terrible storm of the breeches and the dreadful aftermath.
Complete with expert analysis of the battles and battlefields, as well as authentic re-enactment footage and
expertly drawn maps, this DVD is perfect for all Peninsular War historians and those with an interest in this
turbulent period. Filmed on location at the sites where the battles took place more than 200 years ago.
