Book Review:
Military Dress of the Peninsular War

By Martin Widrow and Gerry Embleton


One of the most extraordinary books on the Napoleonic Era focuses on the Peninsular War in Spain and Portugal between 1808 and 1814.

Military Dress of the Peninsular War: 1808 to 1814 is a must-have for anyone interested in Britain's major input into the fight against Napoleon Bonaparte.

This square, 200-page volume is a contain-all of the most necessary pieces of information about "the Spanish Ulcer."

There are 19 colour plates of dozens of uniforms and regiments, with masses of detail on individual units and styles, scores of black-and-white images, and a very detailed history of the Peninsular campaign.

A terrific addition to any buff's library.
