The Fatal Knot: The Guerrilla War in Navarre and the Defeat of Napoleon in Spain

John Lawrence Tone

John Tone recounts the dramatic story of how, between 1808 and 1814, Spanish peasants created and sustained the world’s first guerrilla insurgency movement, thereby playing a major role in Napoleon’s defeat in the Peninsula War. Focusing on the army of Francisco Mina, Tone offers new insights into the origins, motives, and successes of these first guerrilla forces by interpreting the conflict from the long-ignored perspective of the guerrillas themselves.
