Wellington's achievements in the Peninsular War cannot be overestimated. At the outset in 1808 Napoleon and his Marshals appeared unstoppable. By the close Wellington and his Army had convincingly defeated the French and taken the war across the Pyrenees into France itself. He and his Generals had waged a hugely successful campaign both by conventional means and guerrilla warfare.This book contains the pithy biographies of some forty senior officers who served Wellington, in the majority of cases, so ably during this six year war. Many had experience of battle prior to the Peninsular and went onto greater heightsthereafter. There is a section summarising the major engagements that this 'band of brothers' took part in.The book is arranged in alphabetical order and each thoroughly researched entry places its subject's life in his historical and political context. The result is a highly entertaining, informative and authoritative book.Tony Heathcote was senior curator at RMA Sandhurst. His published works with Pen and Sword include The British Field Marshals, The British Admirals of the Fleet, and Nelson's Trafalgar Captains. He lives at Camberley, Surrey.
