Chiclana 1811 - The Defense of Cadiz

Chiclana 1811 - The Defense of Cadiz
by

1-66665

The Battle of Chiclana, also called the Battle of Barrosa, fought on March 5 of 1811 near Cadiz , was a battle of the Spanish War of Independence . An Anglo-Portuguese division defeated two French divisions, but this had minimal effect on the overall strategy of the war.

The reduction in the number of troops besieging the city gave the Anglo-Spanish garrison an opportunity to lift the siege and to this end a large allied force sailed from Cadiz to Tarifa and then north to attack the French lines by the rear, but the French, under the command of Marshal Victor , learned the moves of the allies and prepared a trap.

A French division blocked the road to Cadiz, while the other two divisions of Victor fell against the British division under the command of Sir Thomas Graham . After a bloody battle on two fronts, the British division defeated the French forces attackers. However, the lack of support from the Spanish contingent prevented an absolute victory, and the French were able to regroup and resume their positions in the siege, the Allies achieved their goal, and even Victor's considered a French victory since the siege C?diz by them could continue until August 24th of 1812.
