In August 1808 Sir Richard D. Henegan landed in Portugal as part of the British army sent to stop the French invasion of the Iberian Peninsula and put an end to Napoleon's Imperial ambitions. As a Military Commissary and later Ordnance Commissary in the Field Train, whose job it was to transport and maintain the artillery and ammunition, Henegan's Seven Years' offers an insight into the war from an unusual viewpoint. He provides a vivid and particularly human account of life in the army, describing not only the dangers of fighting the enemy, but also the highs and lows of everyday existence for the soldier in Wellington's army. From initial setbacks and the threat of destruction at the hands of unhappy peasants to the triumph of the famous victory at the Battle of Waterloo, Seven Years is an involving and compelling account of one Englishman's Napoleonic War.
