Somehow having picked up that Haythornthwaite is a go-to author for Napoleonic warfare, this sun-bleached hardcover reads surprisingly familiar for someone with limited knowledge of early modern warfare: the benefits of skirmisher clouds and élan-filled collumn charges versus mutually supporting squares in checkerboard are fleshed out most tastily.

Gives good detail on makeup and operation of British forces in Peninsular war, from how men joined to how they died (more to sickness than battle). Especially strong on command staff, campaigning, medical operations, and the commissariat, with lots of citations and an extensive bibliography. Bookmarked the glossary of period military terms at the back--lots of words new to me. They're mostly not in the text, though, which is easy to read.

Great read if you are looking for an analysis of one of Britain's contingents during the 1800's. Evaluates everything from tactics, dress, weapons, legends or tales from the front, and most of the campaigns. Great read would read it again.
