Talavera: Wellington's Early Peninsula Victories 1808-9
|INSIDE:||25 colour photographs|
Wellington's first battle in the Iberian Peninsula involved around 19,000 French and British troops, whereas at Waterloo seven years later there were one third of a million. In between, the British Army and its commander ascended a steep learning curve.
Here, the story of the campaign of 1808-9 is told in exciting detail, largely through the use of eyewitness accounts from the letters, diaries and memoirs of over sixty participants. There is a detailed description of the two-day battle of Talavera, as well as the fighting at Rolica, Vimiero, Corunna and Oporto.
