WELLINGTON AGAINST SOULT The Second Invasion of Portugal 1809


This well written book has been described as “A triumph of unbiased historical writing and a must read for students of the Peninsular War and Wellingtons Campaigning in general”. Soult’s invasion of Portugal is rarely studied in great depth and, likewise, the offensive Wellesley launched, which defeated and expelled the French, has also received scant coverage. As well as giving a fresh insight into the contrasting characters of the two generals, the narrative offers a gripping and detailed, reconstruction of the organisation and experience of a military campaign.
