    Description
    Michael Glover's incisive history of the Peninsular War in Spain and Portugal draws on a wide range of sources - from the letters of Lord Wellington and King Joseph Bonaparte to accounts from private riflemen and sergeants of dragoons - to provide a fascinating insight into what it was like to march and fight, to eat and be wounded, to command and be commanded at the start of the nineteenth century. Stress is laid on the technological limitations of warfare during this period when all movement was limited to the pace of a heavily-laden infantryman moving across country.Whether describing the stuggle between the French and British armies or the sub-plot of the Spanish armed rising, the author brilliantly combines historical accuracy with a flair for bringing alive the people and events involved in this seven-year conflict.
