Book Review:
Fields of Fire

By Ian Fletcher


From Rolica to Bayonne, Ian Fletcher takes an in-depth look at the battles of Britain's army during the Peninsular War.

The Duke of Wellington's army was more popular away from home than when it was in Britain, but its conduct from 1808 to 1814 turned public opinion.

Fletcher details the battles, many with beautiful colour pictures taken by Andy Cook, and presents a thorough coverage of the campaign in Spain and Portugal.

There are maps and illustrations galore, an overview of Wellington's victorious waging of war and excellent sidebars of information from eyewitnesses such as William Grattan, other less noteable comrades-in-arms and Sir Arthur himself.

Like many of Fletcher's works this is not cheap, but decidedly invaluable.
