Publisher's Summary

During the Peninsular campaign of the Napoleonic wars, the author of this book travelled with Wellington's headquarters. His position as Judge-Advocate kept him busy prosecuting the wrongdoers of the army. In this narrative you'll get to hear first-hand accounts of the various battles and sieges of the campaign including Vitoria. Other highlights include anecdotes of Wellington, murders, skirmishes, the narrator being captured by the enemy, the fall of Pamplona, deserters, rocket fire, and the marvellous bridge of boats.

    "could have been really good"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different narrator with a better grasp of the English language


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Mispronunciation , among to many others to list


    Any additional comments?

    A good item ruined by an atrocious reader, i get the feeling this is some sort of vanity project dreamed up by him the illustrious "Felbrigg Napoleon Herriot" which has got be the most pompous moniker i have ever seen in print , possibly rivalled only by Simon Sebag Montefiore
