During 1812, Wellington's ability to advance and overcome a numerically superior enemy was due to the constant activity of the Spanish guerrillas that diverted French military resources and attention away from fighting the British. In fact, less than a third of the French force could be tasked with confronting Wellington, the rest being used to counter guerrilla activity, or the threat of it. This book brings to life the formation, tactics and experiences of the Spanish guerrilla forces that fought Napoleon's army. Using much unpublished source material, it forms a vivid description of the events and the people who dictated them.
