UNIFORMS OF THE PENINSULAR WAR

1807-1814

by

P. Haythornthwaite & M. Chappell

1st Edition 1978

 

Waged from 1807 until 1814, the war in the Iberian Peninsula was termed by Napoleon a 'Spanish ulcer', hastening his downfall by draining resources and manpower.

This book illustrates over 150 uniforms in colour and more in black-and-white, most portrayed as they actually appeared on campaign, over 60 eye-witness accounts and more than 20 contemporary artists being consulted. In addition to the main protagonists, the British and French armies, extensive coverage is given to the Spanish and Portuguese troops, and the large number of German, Italian, Swiss and Irish who fought on both sides, the troops of the Confederation of the Rhine and the Duchy of Warsaw.

Published by Blandord Press in 1978 , first edition. In oatmeal coloured paper-covered boards with gold titling, the book measures approx. 7 3/4" x 5 1/2" with 180 pages.

The book is in very good condition but with light bumping to the spine ends and corners and slight cocking to the spine.

Internally the book is tight and clean with no inscription.

The dustwrapper has some shelf wear with bumping to the spine ends and corners. The spine is slightly faded but it has not been price clipped.
