Coruna, 16th January 1809 - The historical Battle. After a grueling retreat, the British army under Sir John Moore had intended to embark at Coruna without engaging the enemy. Unfortunately, the ships failed to arrive in time and, with most of his artillery already on the ships, Moore was obliged to accept battle on unfavorable terms.
