Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The expanded title of this book, as printed on the title page, is A Narrative of the Peninsular Campaign 1807-1814, Its Battles and Sieges, Abridged from the History of the War in the Peninsular by Lieut-General Sir W.F.P.Napier, KCB. This says it all. William Napier was the brother of the militarily more famous General Sir Charles, who made his reputation in India and is probably best known for his conquest of the province of Scinde. William, who like his brother did well in the Peninsular War, made his name as the author of the six-volume history War in the Peninsula and this is Dobson s abridged version. As he says in the introduction it has been his aim to give an account of only the principal events of this long and bitterly fought campaign, paying tribute to Napier s masterpiece of detailed military history.

This book was released on 2011-06-06 with total page 475 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: William Napier, was born in Dublin in 1785, one of a number of brothers who entered the British army and excelled in the service although it is his History of the War in the Peninsular that he is most remembered for. A masteful, epic account of the Spanish Ulcer that drained Napoleon's resources and played a pivotal role in the end of his domination of Europe. Napier gained his first commission as an ensign in the Royal Irish Artillery in 1800. By the time of the Napoleonic Wars he had transferred to to the 52nd Regiment, which was being trained as light infantry at Shorncliffe under Sir John Moore. Napier saw his first service in the Peninsular with the 43rd Foot under Sir John Moore during the Corunna campaign. Napier would go on to be conspicuous in the actions of the Light Division, such as the epic march to Talavera, the battles of Fuentes d’Oñoro, Salamanca, Nivelle, Orthes and Toulouse. He left the service a General and Knight Commander of the Order of Bath. In this first volume (1807 to beginning of 1809), Napier surveys the scene in mainland Europe and particularly Spain and Portugal, the rotten state of politics in Spain, the isolation of Portugal as the only ally of Great Britain still not under Napoleon’s domination. He starts with the machinations of the French to supplant the Bourbon regime in Spain and the joint Franco-Spanish invasion of Portugal with its flood of French troops supposed friends soon to be enemies. The initial disastrous campaigns of the splintered Spanish armies are written of in great detail, battles such as Rio Seco and Ucles, and the parlous state of the Spanish government are shown in all their infamy, juxtaposed to the second defence of Sarragossa by the valorous Spaniards. Wellington’s first short-lived campaign in Portugal, including the battle of Vimiero is given due attention and much is lavished on the campaign of Sir John Moore. A Classic, deserves to be read and re-read.
