Freebase

  1. Camisado

    In military tactics, a camisado, or camisade, is a surprise attack occurring at night, or at daybreak, when the enemy are supposed to be asleep. The term comes from Spanish camisa: when the Tercio had actions, of around 50 men attacking at night with minimum equipment, only sword and dagger, and they were dressed only with a white shirt, in order to kill in silence as many enemies when they were sleeping. This has been perfectly reflected in the film Alatriste, based on the main character of a series of novels written by Arturo Pérez-Reverte, The Adventures of Captain Alatriste.
