Less than five weeks after his defeat of the French at Vitoria, Wellington's army was spread over a wide area of the southern Pyrenees from the coast to Roncesvalles. He has laid siege to Pamplona and San Sebastian and deployed the remainder of his army to prevent Marshal Soult from raising either siege.

There are two roads through the mountains to Pamplona. The western one is through the Pass of Maya and the eastern one through the Pass of Roncesvalles.

This weeks battlefield is the latter - Roncesvalles.
