The Talavera Campaign: 8 August 1809
Map showing the position of the main armies involved in the Talavera Campaign at the start of 8 August 1809, the day of the combat of Arzobispo. By the end of the day some of Mortier's men were across the Tagus, but Ney had failed to cross the river and Almaraz, and Victor was refusing to move west to support Mortier. Despite Mortier's success, this day really marked the moment the Allies escaped.
