The siege of Badajoz: The three British divisions about to launch the attack on Badajoz, the Third, Fourth and Light Divisions, comprised some 11, 000 men. On 17th March 1812, the British conducted a survey of the defences of Badajoz. Considerable improvements to the fortifications had been made since the abandoned British siege of Badajoz in May and June 1811. The fort of San Christobal on the north bank of the Guadiana River had been strengthened and a redoubt built on the neighbouring hill, the site of the British breaching battery in 1811 Pardaleras, the fort to the south of the city’s perimeter, had been strengthened and connected with the main city fortifications.
