Description - Wellington's Peninsula Regiments by Mike Chappell

The famously hard-fighting Irish regiments of the British Army distinguished themselves not only in many of the main Peninsular battles, but also in several dramatic, but lesser known actions. This work contains new research into the uniforms and insignia - as well as the battle history - of the Irish regiments of Wellington's army that fought in the Peninsula from 1808 until 1814. It details the 88th Foot (Connaught Rangers), the 27th Foot (Enniskillens), the 4th Royal Irish Dragoon Guards and many others.
