    In this Thread of History talk, Zack White will discuss the origins and course of the Peninsular War, fought in Portugal and Spain from October 1807 and which saw the overthrow of the Bourbon kings by Napoleon Bonaparte, but was then followed by British intervention and the slow fight back, first reclaiming Portugal and then driving the French back across the Pyrenees in the winter of 1813-14.
