First published in 1825, this book was one of the earliest personal accounts to appear in print after the termination of the Peninsular War. Sir Charles Oman, the great historian of that long-drawn-out contest then being fought out in Basque Provinces, stated that, in addition to its literary merit, Gleig's record 'may be better trusted than Blakeney's equally vivid narrative', among others which were to appear in later years.A recommended book and one which should help many get an insight into the army of that period.
