WELLINGTON’S ARMY 1809 - 1814  

OUR PRICE: £16.50  

Standard work with lengthy bibliography of Peninsula War memoirs.
This book gives an unparalleled insight into the organisation, day-to-day life and psychology of Wellington's army, focusing on the characters that Wellington believed could ‘go anywhere and do anything'. Wellington's Army examines both the leaders and the led; the daily life, manners and customs of the Peninsular Army are explored, drawing on despatches, general orders and records of court martial, and, to a greater extent, nonofficial information such as diaries, memoirs and letters. A great deal of literature was produced during this period, written by both commissioned and non-commissioned soldiers. For the soldiers, the campaign became a battle against the Revolution, a kind of crusade, and an attempt to thwart the ‘triple-headed monster of Republicanism, Atheism and Sedition'. The soldiers of Wellington's army were fighting for all that made life worth living – religion, morality, constitution, laws and liberty.
