Campaign Move 28

1200 28th August 1813

7th French corps occupy a strong defensive position to the west of Burgos.

At first light General Graham orders his 2nd allied corps to attack them.

The city of Burgos is Wellington’s campaign objective, and its capture would signal the end of the campaign.  

It would also sever all communications with 8th corps at Aranda, and cut the main road to Madrid.
