LINES OF TORRES VERDAS The Cornerstone of Wellington’s Strategy in the Peninsular War 1809-12


An excellent modern history of the design and building of the Lines, at the time the most extensive field fortifications the world had ever seen, and the campaign waged in front of them in 1810-11, including the battle of Busaco and the skirmish at Sobral in October 1810. This is a well-researched, well-written, closely argued and fascinating contribution to the historiography of the Peninsular War.
