The final phase of the campaign in the Iberian Peninsula

F. C. Beatson's famous trilogy on the genius of the Duke of Wellington as military commander as he led his 'old peninsular army' towards victory is a classic study of the 'great captain of the age' at the height of his powers. It is also an account of the British Army on campaign that encompasses both strategy and tactics together with the personal narratives of the soldiers who took part in these fascinating battles of the Napoleonic Wars. The days of French dominance of Spain and the British war of retreat and defence are over. Everywhere it is Napoleon's French Army that is retiring and it appears that the pivotal battle of Vitoria has heralded their decline. Between the French and their homeland stretches the great natural barrier of the Pyrenees mountain range--difficult terrain ideal for defence. Over the border lay vital resources for the continuance of the war. Marshal Soult believes all is not lost and he intends to throw the advancing Wellington back and regain the offensive.
