A finely written account of the war in Spain by a serving British officer

Moyle Sherer, a young officer of the 34th Regiment of Foot-The Cumberland Gentlemen-has brought a writers eye and pen to his experiences of life on campaign and on the battlefield as a member of Wellington's Army fighting Napoleon's French during the Peninsular Campaign of the Napoleonic Wars. The reader will be treated to rare detail of action, countryside, friends, foes and uniform often missing from the works of less able authors. Sherer was present at Busaso and Albuera among other engagements and his descriptions of the actions and their aftermaths are graphic, riveting and chilling. This red-coated infantryman's chronicle of the war in Spain has long been highly regarded as one of the best memoirs of the period making it essential for serious and casual students alike.
