A History of the Peninsular War 1807-1809, Volume 1

FNH Audio presents a reading of Charles Oman's classic military history "A History of the Peninsular War". In this first volume, a detailed examination is made of the first years of the war, 1807 to 1809. The campaign is examined from both sides using reference materials from British, French, Spanish  and Portuguese sources.

This book covers the invasion of Spain and Napoleon's trickery in luring the Spanish crown into prison. It also features Wellington's first peninsular battle and of course the famous retreat to Corunna and the battle at that place.

This history written many years after Napier's, draws its information from more first-hand accounts and corrects some of more glaring mistakes and biases of Napier.

Although this audio book is abridged, the only text removed is a number of the non-English sections of the Appendix, namely sections 1,2,3,4,7. All English text from the appendices is present.

This is volume 1 of a 7 volume set.
