Wellington's Peninsula Regiments by Mike Chappell
Book DescriptionThis book contains new research into the uniforms and insignia - and the battle history - of the crack Light Infantry regiments, which distinguished themselves on a score of battlefields in the Peninsular War, 1808-14. The Light Division was Wellington's crack formation, with a tremendous battle record gained through imaginative tactics and high training as well as courage. Information about the little-known second Light Division which served in eastern Spain is also included in this fascinating account of these elite troops. Highly detailed illustrations and anecdotes bring to life members of Wellington's Light Infantry regiment during the Peninsula War.
