WITH WELLINGTON IN THE PENINSULA The Adventures of a Highland Soldier 1808-1814

£19.99 £3.99

One of the few survivors of the 71st Highland Light Infantry who sailed with Wellington from Ireland to Portugal in 1808, the author of this cynical but good humoured memoir was in the forefront of some of the hardest fought actions of the six year war. Written in 1827, the book is notable for its unvarnished criticism of the high command remarkable in coming from a lowly ranker.
