Hi - Just want to congratulate all re-enactors in Ukraine for a superb campaigning season in 2009. What with the Terra Heroica enjoying its 5th year at Kamyanets-Podilsky and of course - your recent War on the ( Crimean ) Peninsular.
Ok, its not the real Spainish Peninsular but as they say in England, if its good enough for
Sharpe, its good enouth for you. :D 8-)
No doubt ,it will come as a surprise to find a Brit on the Military Ukraine forum but I'm no
stranger to Ukraine, having visited Ukraine many times to the wonderful city port of Odessa.
Also me and re-enacting, go back a long way to the early days of the Sealed Knot.

No doubt some members have heard of Lt Campers before through your Google searches on
the internet, if not then your in for a surprise.
Anyway I promised to present the real Spainish Peninsular Wars ( реальное война на півострові ) and here it is:

Its certainly an idea, although as you will notice - My Back to the Peninsular Wars, blogs
are following the 200rd anniversary re-enactments; as they take place in Spain and Portugal.
I have two blogs running, the first being the 'Back to the Peninsular Wars', blog on the
Expat Ukraine, that include a few posts on russian re-enactments.

Back to the Peninsular Wars

The other being my 'Back to the Napoleonic Wars, the Vimeiro campaign & beyond' blog on
the Expat Portugal website, under my other pen name Capt William:

Back to the Napoleonic Wars

The idea for the blogs comes from my trip to Brno in the Czech Republic to see the 200th
anniversary re-enactment of the Battle of Austerlitz, 1805 back in December 2005. A
brilliantly organised re-enactment which included a number of preliminary skirmishes
and marches, prior to the big battle ( televised on Czech TV ) on the 3rd December 2005.

Fortunately these skirmishes and the Big battle itself - are still available for viewing
over the internet. For those that went, its probably the most memorable re-enactment
in Europe thanks to the snowy weather. See the start of my blog for video links.

Other 200th anniversary re-enactments soon followed, like the Battle of Pultusk in June
2006 ( another memorable event during a very hot month ), Jena in October 2006.
Napoleon's entry into Berlin. Battles of Eylau and Friedland in 2007 and the British
landings in Copenhagen in September 2007. The Russians also commemorated the 200th
anniversary of the invasion of Finland in february 2008.
This was what started my Back to the Napoleonic Wars ( version 1 ) which
became disorganised as the events didn't really follow the 200th anniversary
re-enactments as they took place. Several photo and video links have gone but still
includes nice video's like the Russia Today documentary program on Borodino as re-enacted,
today.

Russia Today TV news report on the Battle of Borodino

Russia Today, Borodino

Russia Today, 30 minute documentary following re-enactors preperations for the
commemoration of the Battle of Borodino, near Moscow.

Therefore when I heard that the Battles of Rolica and Vimeiro were going to be recreated
for the 200th anniversary event in August, 2008. I naturally flew over to Portugal and took
photos, including a video recording of the re-enactments.
Thats what started the Back to the Peninsular Wars, which follows the 200th anniversary
events more closely. Including other 200th anniversary re-enactments in Europe, these I'm
updating along with current historical events which include a report on the Lines of Torres Vedras.

Napoleons troops - under Marshall Victor & General Sebastiani march on Cadiz & Malaga

Just to let you know that Napoleon's troops have come out of Winter quarters and are
already marching on Cadiz and Malaga in Spain. The first clash of the 1810 campaign will
be at the Spainish coastal resort of Malaga on the Costa de Sol.
With clashes between General Sebastiani's french troops and the spainish scheduled for
the weekend of 5th, 6fh & 7th February. Check the spainish website. 8-)
