    I expected this to be repetitious of other Peninsular material I'm already familiar with and thus dry reading at times however it was not! Excellent read managing to truly bring fresh perspective yet again. Esdaile is one of the best historians out there!

    Good use made of contemporary eyewitness accounts, some of which were familiar and others not. I particularly liked the appendix detailing lives of many of the individuals mentioned in the text.More readable than the same author's 'The Peninsular War'.
