WELLINGTON AGAINST SOULT: THE SECOND INVASION OF PORTUGAL 1809

BUTTERY (D.)

240pp., 30 illus. 2016. In Soult, Wellesley met one of his most formidable opponents and they confronted each other during one of the most remarkable, and neglected, of the Peninsular campaigns. Soult’s invasion of Portugal is rarely studied in great depth and, likewise, the offensive Wellesley launched, which defeated and expelled the French, has also received scant coverage.
