TANGIER: The Earliest Battle Honour

TANGIER: The Earliest Battle Honour
by Hawkins, John

1-242100

In 1661, Portugal ceded Tangier to Charles II as part of Catherine of Braganza's dowry settlement. Thus started the adventure known as 'English Tangier' whereby the Stuart monarch spent a king's ransom defending a city perched precariously on the North African coast surrounded by hostile powers.

This narrative history of the characters that comprised English Tangier highlights the greed, ambition, and religious fervor which drove the political maneuverings, ignited the emotions and produced acts of extreme heroism in the struggle to impose British rule on an alien culture. Covers the actions of the Tangier Regiment and other regiments and the earliest battle honor: 'Tangier.' Examines decisions made by Charles II and his brother the Duke of York (soon to be James II), the qaids and sultans of Morocco, the Spanish Duke of Medina, Samuel Pepys and the successive governors of Tangier. Contains 50 mono illustrations.
