152pp., 6 maps. 2017. William Brown’s autobiography is a unique historical document, since he is the only memoirist to have come to light from the ranks of the 45th (1st Nottinghamshire) Regiment of Foot for the period of the Peninsula War – a regiment that was one of Wellington’s longest-serving and most valiant in that turbulent era, a proud member of Sir Thomas Picton’s ‘Fighting’ Third Division.
