… Peninsular War 1807-1814

"This book discusses the Portuguese Army during the Peninsular War, especially after its reorganization by William Carr Beresford and Miguel Pereira Forjaz, and how it become Wellington's other army, which he trusted to carry out large military operations in the Iberian Peninsula. This is a topic so little addressed in the context of military history at an international level and so this work examines the rebirth of the Portuguese army after the first French invasion and the accelerated, effective, but also costly reorganisation process that formed part of a joint action between the Portuguese Regency and the British Government. In addition to the material and operational aspects, actions, weapons and uniforms, the book seeks to provide an overview of the daily lives of Portuguese troops, of the difficulties felt by these men in the troubled and traumatic period of the Peninsular War. These events were described in archival documents, namely in the Orders of the Day within the period referred to, as well as in the documentary series of the Military Historical Archive, Torre do Tombo National Archives, Porto District Archive, Braga District Archive and the National Archives, in London, as well as in many English narratives."
