By that logic, why add the British since the majority of their land based campaigns were failures.

I thought the Peninsula campaign and Waterloo were successes? (Egypt was the only one I know about that didn't work out.)

Kingdom of Spain - Reino de España

Hello everyone. The next faction that should be added in Holdfast: Nations at war is the Kingdom of Spain because it took a very important role in the Napoleonic wars since the beginning and it was (and it still being) one of the anciest and greatest nations of Europe as well as the most forgotten one. 

Firstly the Kingdom of Spain aligned with the 1st Coalition against the French Republic, attacking the Roussillon. Spain also participated in the 2nd and 3rd Coalition but this time allied with France, taking an important participation in the 3rd Coalition when the franco-spanish fleet was defeated by the United Kingdom in the Battle of Trafalgar (one of the most named battles of the history) and sending a contingent of 14,000 men (North Division, under command of the Marqués de la Romana) to Denmark.

Also, the Spanish armada has been the biggest one in history for a long time and it was one of the biggest ones in the age that take place the game.

Already in 1808 and having their kings kidnapped in Valençay, Spain was under gobern of the Supreme Regency and organized in Juntas when declared war on the French Empire and joined the 5th Coalition in the one known by the English as the Peninsular War and for the Spanish as the Guerra del Francés (War on the French) where the Spanish defeated for the first time in history the Grande Armée, what made the Emperor go to the Spanish front, adding this with the failed attempt to conquer Russia is what started the decline of the First French Empire and made Napoleon to be banished.

For the M&B's DLC Napoleonic wars only there were a few mods that replaced one faction for the Kingdom of Spain, as I did one for my regiment.

Some Spanish Troops:

2.º Regimiento de infantería de línea de la Reina (line infantry)

It's weird seeing all this borderline spam for Spain, the people supporting the other factions are being so quiet by comparison.
