Spain in the American Revolutionary War

Wiki here.
As you can see I am still reading the Osprey The Spanish Army in North America 1700-93. It's an excellent tome written by one of my favourite Osprey authors Rene Chartrand. Illustrated by David Rickman.

  1. iirc it was General Gonzalez who led this campaign and he wrote a book about it called "I Alone". Its an excellent book and full of great first hand accounts. The Spanish use of irregulars and militia troops was highly enlightened compared to the British Command. The battle of Pensacola is a very exciting battle as well.
