This was the first title in the series – “Historical Re-enactments” – that record the world’s most important historic battle re-enactments. In this book, we travel to Corunna in Spain to witness one of the first British victories of the Peninsular War. Napoleon with his superior numbers had hoped to drive Sir John Moore’s “expeditionary force” back into Portugal but Moore, a brave visionary chose to go on the offence. The participants in this recreation were able to witness for themselves the uniforms, the weapons, the behaviour and the military strategy of that 19th century period. This book allows you to join in that journey back in time. It covers: Historical background; The public engagement; Maps and Battle Order – re-enactment of the Battle; The French Army; and The British Army. It also includes nearly 150 full-colour photographs of the re-enactment of the battle, including officers and men, camp followers and officers’ wives.
