Battle of Talavera: The Night Attack, 27-28 July 1809
The night attack at Talavera, 27-28 July 1809. Only one part of Victor's corps was involved, and only the 9th Leger regiment had any success, smashing through the British front line and reaching the top of the Cerro de Medellin before being repulsed. The 96th Regiment failed to advance across the ravine in front of the British lines, and the 24th moved too far north, and missed the British lines.
