    1. Wow what a book This was a real page turner I came at it knowing absolutely nothing about Wellington except that he beat Napoleon at Waterloo, and even less about any wars on the Peninsular But having read plenty of books on the early settlement of Tasmania, I kept hearing about men convicts and the soldiers who guarded them who had fought with Wellington in the Peninsular So in effect, this was the war that built Australia Weller s book underlines Wellington s brilliance without idolising him h [...]


    2. I liked this book It is very detailed and covers Wellington s campaign in the Iberian peninsula I don t have any other point of reference in assessing the accuracy of fiures or details of the various battles and sieges conducted during this time The book has several photos of battlefields and drawings of multiple maps.


    3. It s a little dated but still a valuable read Far honest regarding allied help i.e Spanish and Portuguese then many others including some recent that should know better.However the Waterloo one is of far less value.
