n the course of the Peninsular War, Wellington became the most celebrated general in British history. This book offers a narrative account of the Peninsular Campaign from 1809-1814 - its victories, difficulties and set-backs. There are full-scale accounts of the four battles - Busaco, Salamanca, Vitoria and the Nivelle - in which Wellington defeated his principal opponents of the War - Massena, Marmont, Jourdan and Soult. The officers and the men who served in the Peninsula left behind them many eye-witness desciptions, and it is on these, and other secondary sources of the history of the War, that the author has based his study.
