Life inside Wellington's 'Old Peninsula Army'
The 'Dirty Half Hundred'-the 50th-won their nickname not from a propensity for unsanitary habits, but from their black facing colour on cuffs and collars which would, when rubbed onto sweating faces, transform the soldiers to the appearance of chimney sweeps. Captain Patterson's adventures are written in a companionable, good natured style which leads the reader through the Peninsular War towards the Pyrenees and Southern France Campaign. This account is filled with much essential information of the campaign and the battlefields as well as entertaining anecdotes of the authors own experiences and those of his soldiers and comrades. An essential addition to the Napoleonic library of every enthusiast. Available in soft cover or hard back with dust jacket.
