A rare first hand account of Wellington's Army
Students of the Peninsular War will be familiar with 'The Subaltern' by Gleig (also published by Leonaur), but that fine work should not be confused with this book by another young officer, George Wood, which has found its way into print far less frequently since its original publication. This is one more vital account of the war in Spain told from the sharp end. It is particularly valuable for its insights into the privations and sufferings of campaign life particularly during retreats. We follow Wood through Vimiera, Corunna, Talavera, Vittoria over the Pyrenees and through the Southern France Campaign. Wood's regiment may not be familiar to many readers and so the Leonaur editors have appended an excellent concise history of the activities of the 82nd during the Napoleonic Age by Brevet-Major Jarvis which gives context to Wood's own story. Available in soft back and hard cover with dust jacket for collectors.
