NAPIER, William Francis Patrick.
English battles and sieges in the Peninsula. Extracted from his ‘Peninsula War’, by Lieut.-Gen. Sir William Napier, K.C.B., etc. etc.
First edition. ‘In this publication, the combats of Roriça, Vimiero, and Coruña, and the character of Sir John Moore, have been entirely recomposed. The other battles and sieges are, with more or less compression of details, transcripts from the History of the Peninsular War. Thus arranged they will perhaps most effectually exhibit the constant energy of the British soldier, and draw attention in their neighbourhoods to the veterans who still survive’ (p. ii).
