An Atlas of the Peninsular War (Historical Atlas)

By Ian Robertson

Published by Yale University Press (2010)

This is the first comprehensive modern atlas of the Peninsular War, the series of campaigns in Spain and Portugal between Napoleonic France and British forces commanded by the Duke of Wellington. Here a distinguished military historian examines and explains the sequence of battles and the course of war through expertly drawn colour cartography. A general introduction, together with an historical summary setting the campaigns in context, is followed by fifty-three detailed maps and plans, each with a complementary text providing a succinct description of the action depicted. The great battles of Vimeiro, Talavera, Busaco, Albuera, Salamanca, Vitoria and the Pyrenees are all graphically described, together with the main sieges and many minor combats. This is an indispensable companion for both serious students and military enthusiasts interested ion the Napoleonic Wars.
