Osprey Men-at-Arms 35 : Wellington's Peninsular Army

During the Peninsular War, however, Wellington led and trained an army that never knew a major defeat on the field. Even Wellington himself described his army as 'able to go anywhere or do anything'. This book examines the formidable British Army which played an integral part in stalling Napoleon's advance, focusing on the staff, infantry, cavalry, artillery and sieges and sappers. This book examines the equipment, uniforms and campaigns that changed the British Army. Numerous illustrations, including eight colour plates, vividly depict the weaponry and uniforms of Wellington's Peninsular Army. Text by James Lawford with illustrations by Michael Roffe.
