In 1994 Ian Fletcher published his book Fields of Fire, which was the first book to show Wellington’s Peninsular War battlefields in full colour. Now, almost 20 years on, he returns with a second book, The Peninsular War: Wellington’s Battlefields Revisited which shows how things have changed since 1994. The beautiful photographs cover all of Wellington’s major battles, and many smaller engagements also, to show them in all their glory, from the snowy Galician mountains, to the dry, dusty plain of Salamanca, and from the low rolling slopes of Albuera to the breathtaking Pyrenees. Coming as it does in the middle of the 200th anniversary of the Peninsular War, this book is a timely reminder of one of the most successful campaigns ever fought by the British Army.
