Retour au sommaire
After Bailén and the consequent French retreat, there was a confrontation between Cuesta and General Castaños which ended with Cuesta’s arrest. Zayas, as his subordinate and close collaborator, was stripped of his post of Chief of Staff of the so-called Army of Castile. These troops, reduced to a division of that which Zayas had joined, moved towards Logroño. At Logroño they fought several skirmishes with the French. On the 25th October Ney attacked Logroño, which he abandoned the next day. General Castaños considered the troops of the division had not fought as well as they could have, so he ordered their dissolution. Zayas found himself without a position.
