Wellington's Army in the Peninsula (Book #108)

Wellington's Army in the Peninsula, 1808-1814 (Michael Glover, 1977) covers much the same ground as Sir Charles Oman's earlier work, which I read a few weeks ago, though it's a bit shorter, more modern in tone, and kinder to Wellington's character (and fairer, I think--in all my reading, it's pretty obvious there's a thoroughly decent and in many ways likable man hiding under all that snark and arrogance).
