Book excerpt: Excerpt from History of the War in the Peninsula, Vol. 1: Under Napoleon, to Which Is Prefixed a View of the Political and Military State of the Four Belligerent Powers In publishing the first part of a work which is far from having received a final revision, I think myself hound to give the Reader some details, in order to meet the reproaches which may possibly he made to it by severe criticism, and to satisfy the wishes of a more friendly interest as to what it contains. When in 1814 my husband returned into the bosom of private life, he conceived the idea of writing the History of the Peninsular War, a war in which he had been engaged for seven years, and the narrative of which, mingled with political considerations, seemed destined to he the commencement of his apprenticeship to a new career. From that moment he devoted himself to it, with that conscientious research and activity of mind which he displayed in every thing he undertook. After collecting numerous materials in France and England, he proceeded to write, uninterruptedly, what I now publish. The first half of the work was revised by himself, rather with a view to improve the arrangement and division of his materials, as is proved by the corrections, which are entirely in his own handwriting,) than to purify the style, a labour which he deferred until a later period. The second half was written over only once; if was his first idea; it was, as it were, an improvisation. In 1817, his bad state of health having compelled him to interrupt his labours, he left the work imperfect and never afterwards revised it.

THE INVASION OF PORTUGAL. _ ' '-""Survj % i The campaign which we are about to narrate lasted but twenty days. It was not distinguished, among the others by the splendour of the military events, and still less by the number of soldiers which were brought into action; it will, nevertheless, be for ever memorable, as marking the commencement of a new and more animated struggle between Great Britain and France. For fifteen years the Cabinet of St. James's had ceased to send its armies to carry on a regular war upon the Continent. Reserving the English soldiers for expeditions immediately connected with the employment of its naval forces, it attacked France only by means of the wars and conspiracies which it hired against her. There would have been nothing to induce it to change this system of policy, had the Spaniards and Portuguese peaceably accepted the yoke of the Emperor Napoleon. In the month of November, 1807, a corps of six thousand men, under the orders of Major-general 490 ENGLISH EXPEDITION TO PORTUGAL. Brent Spencer, was assembled at Portsmouth, for the purpose of reinforcing the English army in Sicily, which had been weakened by the recent expedition to Alexandria. It was intended also to make use of it in seizing the Portuguese and the Russian fleets, which were in the Tagus. But the departure of the Prince Regent to Brazil, and the arrival of the French at Lisbon, caused this scheme to be abandoned. Spencer's corps proceeded to Gibraltar. This was an intermediate station between Sicily> the first object of the expedition, and Portugal, now in the hands of the French. Other French troops crossed the Pyrenees and inundated the Peninsula. The Cabinet of St. James's was far from anticipating the...

Book excerpt: Excerpt from History of the War in the Peninsula, Under Napoleon, Vol. 2: To Which Is Prefixed a View of the Political and Military State of the Four Belligerent Powers; Part I General Foy himself intended to have published an English translation of his work at the same time with the original; he employed a gentleman for that purpose, * who translated the first three books (of the History) in 1817, and the fourth book in the beginning of 1818. His intention appears originally to have published the work in volumes, in order to anticipate Dr. Southey's History, then known to be preparing; but the circumstances stated in Madame Foy's Preface led to its suspension, and finally to its abandonment.

Rating Book: 4.6/5 (466 users)

Download or read book The Peninsular War written by Charles Esdaile and published by St. Martin's Press. This book was released on 2015-03-17 with total page 640 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: At the end of the 18th century Spain remained one of the world's most powerful empires. Portugal, too, was prosperous at the time. By 1808, everything had changed. Portugal was under occupation and ravaged by famine, disease, economic problems and political instability. Spain had imploded and worse was to come. For the next six years, the peninsula was the helpless victim of others, suffering perhaps over a million deaths while troops from all over Europe tore it to pieces. Charles Esdaile's brilliant new history of the conflict makes plain the scope of the tragedy and its far-reaching effects, especially the poisonous legacy that produced the Spanish civil war of 1936-9.
