Lisboa, Livraria Ferin, Figueira, Imprensa Lusitana, Vincente, Antonio Pedro. Cooperativa Militar, Lisboa, Lisboa, Imprensa da Armada, Vitorino, Pedro. Figueirinhas, Porto, The recollection starts by taking into anticipation, and then into examination, the battle, first of all on the base of conventionally established criteria of comprehension: the French troops in the field, their tactical movements, the challenging topographic intricacies of the country, the predominantly exposed strategic cadre, and the tactics.
Persevering through his efficacious chronicled efforts, Marbot presents the counter-opposed deployments — the Portuguese, the French —, with the aim to comprehend the salient moments and how the antagonists rivalled in the surroundings of Tojal. Their personal incidence had a resolving outcome on the combat.
The whole series combine a surprisingly and unique new look at this singularly neglected facet of Napoleonic military history. This was far too large a train for a rough country like Portugal, where there were scarcely any high roads. Almost the only communications are narrow, rocky paths, often very steep, and everything is transported on mule-back. There are even districts where roads are absolutely unknown.
Remarkably, a fine work. For practical facilities of consultation, vide : Rousselot, Lucien. Planche No. Further thematic readings of consultation: Charmy, G..

Casemate Publishers, One often sees there the sites the most pleasant and the most fruitful, near some aspects the most arid. The roads, narrow, irregular and hilly, are nearly impracticable for others vehicles than those of the country, who are drawn by oxen. The main road from Badajoz to Lisbon makes exception; it is very beautiful.
The side roads are not but tracks, that climb some steep mountains then to descend into deep ravines. The configuration of the soil makes therefore of Portugal a theater ill-suited to war, and seems to defend the inhabitants from any invasion. Also the Portuguese have always resisted the Spanish, more numerous and more fierce than them. A detrimental factor is observed: it appeared that these precocious errata mined the tactical reliability and functionality of the road itineraries, and any expounded amplitude i.
Like everyone else I found myself delayed because of the shortages we experienced in obtaining every kind of information.
History of Mauritius - The Naval Battle of Grand Port,
I worked until the last moment to collect all available materials. I had to begin by correcting the map, or rather by drawing a new one based on the confused and often contradictory notes. University of Minnesota Press, Minneapolis, , p. Undeniably, deplorable adverse concomitant effects occurred, and time constraints were at the practical ordinary effect of the days of campaign. And I was sure that it would be carefully picked over by the commanders.
I also prepared copies of the itinerary map I had drawn. They were sent to each corps commander with orders to modify or correct the mistakes on the map which they already had. We sent a schedule of the marches for each column and unit, clearly showing the day-by-day situation of each army corps, the advance guard, the grand parc, and the general headquarters, with the distances to be traveled, the distance between the columns, the roads to be followed, and observations on the principal modifications in the orders.
Nevertheless, carelessness can result in very dangerous accidents. These methods should be followed especially in countries where good maps are lacking. In other countries it is necessary first to agree on the map to be used in the correspondence, and then always to use copies of it for fixing the disposition of troops in a more precise manner or particular way. These incongruities appeared well-known, recognized in their limitations and as an unavoidable direct cause of major difficulties — of the march, and relative movement on ground.
In effect, many of the villages were not shown and a very large number were incorrectly placed. The rivers, the roads, and, even more, the contours of the terrain were inaccurately shown. However, despite the imperfections in the map, drawn according to our information, it was infinitely superior to that of the printed maps. Still it was necessary to use them for the country we crossed between Viseu and Coimbra. This work was not enjoyable for anybody, and it was impossible for me to apply myself as much as I would have wished. In fact, it must be acknowledged that we did it in a very tiresome manner.
Our French-speaking Portuguese had nothing to teach us about these districts or the other areas. We had to use their translations to obtain any information and then unscramble the many variations and obscurities of the translators and obtain details that were difficult to grasp and express.
However recalled, this affirmed subjective view must be clarified. It is in two parts: Part 1 takes a historical perspective, while Part 2, to be published at the end of this week, will look at the importance of maritime transport in modern Mauritius. It is now well established that the Arabs were the first to visit Mauritius, probably around the 14 th Century, although it is difficult to say with certainty when they first landed on the island.
In Alberto Cantino created the first European, using an Arab map. Discovery, colonization and maritime battles. The Portuguese : Historical evidence shows that the island was visited in 15th Century by the Portuguese, when Vasco da Gama made its entry in the Indian Ocean in The first Portuguese to visit the island around is thought to be Domingo Fernandez Pereira. The island was later named Cirne on Portuguese maps. They however, did not established a settlement and therefore left no physical trace on the island. The first settlements by the Dutch: Landing: ; First settlement: — ; Second settlement: — A series of four postage stamps and a miniature sheet were released in to mark the th anniversary of Dutch landing in Mauritius.
The miniature sheet pictures a scene of the arrival of Dutch fleet in Mauritius. For the first 40 years, however, the Dutch did not establish a colony but rather used Mauritius as a stop-over, for ship repairs and food provision. In , two expeditions, led by Admiral Corneille, and consisting of eleven ships and 1, men, landed for the first time in the northwest part of the island. He landed on board the vessel Maen. In , a second attempt was made, but the settlements never developed enough to produce dividends and the Dutch abandoned Mauritius for good in They are remembered for the introduction of sugar-cane, domestic animals and deer.
It was from Mauritius that the Dutch navigator Tasman set out to discover the western part of Australia. The first settlers however started occupation in To commemorate the th anniversary of French landing in Mauritius, a joint issue was released by France and Mauritius in During the French period, another ship made history and inspired a world-famous novel.
Built in the port of Lorient in France, it set for Isle de France on 24 March , as portrayed in the miniature sheet below. Falling masts stove in the boats before they could be launched, a makeshift raft capsized and only 9 survivors who made it to shore survived. In total, sailors, 13 passengers and 30 slaves died. A series of stamps was released in featuring some scenes from the book storyline.
Pirates and privateers. The raids continued until when a strong British expedition was sent to capture the island. In , a series of 4 postage stamps was released to illustrate some of the most famous pirates and privateers that operated in the Indian Ocean and notably in Isle de France. The 15cs stamp features a pirate dhow entering the river Tamarin; the 60 cs stamp shows an image of a hypothetical treasure excavated in Mauritius; The R.
Robert Surcouf was a particularly famous privateer or corsaire. He operated in the Indian Ocean between and , and again from to and captured over 40 prizes.
