Countless studies examining almost every aspect of this momentous event have been published but what has not been written is an in-depth study of a division. It concentrates on the famous Fifth Division, commanded by Sir Thomas Picton, which was a key element in Wellington’s Reserve. The experiences of this division form a microcosm of those of the entire army.
