WITH MOORE TO CORUNNA The Diary of Ensign Charles Paget, Fifty-Second Foot


The complete text of Paget’s diary is reproduced here, edited and with detailed notes and an extended introduction by Charles Esdaile, one of the most distinguished historians of the period. In order to give the reader contrasting views of episodes which Paget records, he has brought in first-hand accounts written by other Peninsular veterans, featuring the battle of Vimeiro and the action at Cacabelos.The result is a valuable addition to the literature devoted to the British participation in the Peninsular War.
