WELLINGTON’S REDJACKETS The 45th (Nottinghamshire) Regiment on Campaign in South America and the Peninsula 1805-14


Wellington’s Redjackets, is one of the most detailed unit histories ever published of a regiment during the Napoleonic era. As the first, and only, study of this regiment, it is well written, packed full of detail, and, there are many useful maps. The 45th would take part in – or at least be present at – the battles or sieges of Rolica, Vimiera, Talavera, Busaco, Fuentes D’Onoro, Ciudad Rodrigo, Badajoz, Salamanca, Vittoria, Pyrenees, Nivelle, Orthes and Toulouse; making it one of the most experienced of Wellington’s infantry regiments by the time of Napoleon’s first defeat. It is an essential purchase for those with an enthusiasm for the Peninsular War.
