Description: On 27 September, 1810, having beaten Busaco, Massena was on his way to Lisbon. Already on the defensive, Wellington was strengthening his position and protecting his forces behind a formidable network of fortifications he had built: the famous lines of Torres Vedras. The French, commanded by Massena, were ignorant of their existence. The confrontation of the French with the lines of Torres Vedas provides the backdrop to Valeria Sarmiento's The Lines of Wellington.
