The Peninsular War, 1807-1814; a concise military history by Michael Glover( Book )

19 editions published between 1974 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Engelsk militærhistorie. Om den Peninsulære krig 1807-1814, the Peninsular War, krigen og felttogene i Spanien og Portugal mellem den engelske hær, og resterne af den spanske kongetro hær, samt den portugisiske hær og så Napoleons franske hærstyrker incl. diverse hjælpe- og lejetropper. Krigen beskrives bagefter som et opgør mellem Wellington og Napoleon, men rent faktisk var Napoleon meget lidt involveret. Krigen vekslede mellem regulære slag og kampe, og den spanske civilbefolknings udmattende nålestik overfor den franske hær; en udbredt form for guerilla- og partisankrigsførelse, hvortil det bjergrige terræn var ideelt. Glovers bog lægger hovedvægten på at beskrive de enkelte slag og kampe og udviklingen i den lange krig. Bogen har bilagsmateriale med: Biografiske oplysninger om de involverede hovedpersoner (hos alle parter); kort; oversigt over de britiske regimenter, der deltog i kampene; oversigt over de ledende officerer, der indgik i den britiske hærs stab samt troppeinddeling. Oversigt over de franske hærstyrkers organisation herunder troppeinddeling

5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Some of the most dramatic battles in history, particularly during the two World Wars, took place in 'the cockpit of Europe'. They are fascinating to visit and close to routes which make them easily accessible to modern tourists. Michael Glover selects and comments on the battlefields. He explains just why and how the battles took place, choosing battlegrounds that to a large extent still exist and which still give the visitor a clear impression of their past. Detailed travel information makes the visit easy for today's traveller. Each battle is dealt with in three sections. First the background and influences which lead up to the action are described. This followed by a guide to the ground, showing precisely how the battle was fought and how the scene looks today. The third section contains penetrating accounts of nearby places, people, events, weapons, tactics or inspired works of art, which give the reader special insight into the reality and atmosphere of the battle"--Dust jacket
