Useful reprint of an eyewitness account of the Peninsular War by a light-infantry sergeant who fought from 1808 until he was captured in 1813, thus ranging from the retreat to Corunna, through Busaco, Talavera and the great sieges of Cuidad Rodrigo and Badajoz, to Salamanca and Vittoria. Plenty of individual detail; free comments on his superiors; and no preaching till the final pages, when he turns temperance advocate. Written long after the event - it first came out in New York in 1847 - but its stories ring true. Useful brief introduction by James Colquhoun. (Kirkus UK)
