Osprey Men-at-Arms 343 : The Portuguese Army of the Napoleonic Wars (1)

The first of two books covering the organisation, uniforms and weapons of the Portuguese Army in Europe during the Napoleonic Wars. Based on Portuguese as well as newly discovered British documents, this study comprises the most extensive source yet published in English on the material culture of these forces between 1806 and 1815. Rene Chartrand examines the background to the ancient alliances of Britain and Portugal, and the formative events of the War of the Oranges. Rene Chartrand deals with the army reforms that followed in 1806, and the French invasion of Portugal in 1807, resulting in massive British aid and equipment being given to the Portuguese by the British. It details the descriptions of the service, battle record and uniform of each regular regiment in the Peninsular War from 1808 to 1814 and is accompanied by illustrations by Bill Younghusband.
