The Spanish 'Revolution'.

Bloody attacks and equally vicious reprisals were the mainstay for the time from 2 May 1808 until the French were expelled in 1814. Neither side was doing anything remarkable, just the typical guerilla force striking out whenever the French felt 'safe' and having nasty counter-attacks coming against mostly civil targets by the Imperial forces.

This appears to have been a clip from the Napoleon series that was done in the early 2000's featuring Christian Clavalier as Napoleon and having other notables such as Gerard Depardieu, playing Fouche, and John Malkovitch in the role of Talleyrand.

Makes one wonder if the modern leaders have ever even heard of history, much less paid any attention to it...
