G.A. Henty had a knack for condensing the complex issues of a war into a single book, but even he realized that the scope of the Peninsular War was so extensive, that a single book would t do it justice. Therefore, it is only natural that Henty's two books on the subject, With Moore at Corunna & Under Wellington's Command, be combined into a single volume. The Peninsular War was one of the more colorful and involved wars ever fought, filled with many battles, sieges, colorful characters, and back-and-forth action. The French invaded Spain and then set their sights on Portugal. Responding to the provocation, the British sent Sir John Moore to thwart Napoleon's ambitions. Experience the Peninsular War by following the exploits of a fictional young Irishman, Terrence O'Conr, as he rises to the rank of Colonel while leading a Portuguese unit attached to the British army. This tale is a wonderful mix of adventure and history that makes excellent reading for older children and adults. Included in this edition are geographical, historical, and explanatory foottes which will help the modern reader to savor this G.A. Henty classic.
