….OF CAPTAIN PETER BOWLBY 4TH FOOT (1791-1877)

"72pp., 7 illus., P.B. 2015. Peter joined the 4th (King's Own) Foot on 7th June 1808, rising to lieutenant on 31st of May 1809 and to Captain on 23rd October 1824. He served at Walcheren, Ceuta, the Peninsular War (seeing action at Badajoz, Salamanca, the retreat from Burgos, Vitoria, San Sebastian, the Nive and Nivelles it is unclear why he did not receive a bar for Vitoria), Bladensburg and the burning of Washington and New Orleans, before returning to Europe just in time to participate at Waterloo and in the subsequent march to Paris. His memoir gives an excellent idea of life as a junior officer during the Napoleonic wars."

All that in a mere 72 pages? Not much to see…

I wish the publisher here, and many others, would put 5-10 or so sample pages of each book on their web page.

How hard can it be?

A 50 word description is not enough to tell me anything useful and separate me from my $ given the risk of buying unseen – even though a number of the titles look very interesting.
