Title: The Spanish Army in the Peninsula War.
Description: Manchester: Manchester University Press, 1988. 0719025389. 1st edition. War, Armed Forces and Society series. "The Spanish army of the Napoleonic era is almost unknown as far as most British historians are concerned. Yet it played a crucial role in the victories of the Duke of Wellington. Moreover, it was capable of fighting with great courage..British historians have usually described the Spanish war effort largely in terms of Wellington's victories. They have therefore placed much emphasis on the activities of the guerrillas. The book suggests that, for all the importance of popular resistance, by sapping Spain's capacity to wage regular warfare it ultimately rendered her incapable of liberating herself." Pp.xiv/232, 5 maps. Red cloth, dustwrapper has uneven sunning to spine and rear cover, now in a removable clear protective wrap. Scarce. VG/G+.
