Hamilton's Campaigns with Moore and Wellington during the Peninsular War

Front Cover
Pickle Partners Publishing, Jun 9, 2011 - History - 104 pages
The memoir of another of the hardy and eloquent Irish soldiers that fought in the British army during the Peninsular Wars. Hamilton’s memoirs were not intended for a large publication and do not contain the details of camp and campaign life that you might find in such works by Costello, Tomkinson or Kincaid. They are, however, a collection of first rate eye-witness accounts of the battles that Hamilton and his comrades of the 43rd regiment of Foot took part in, or was in a position to offer a close second-hand account of. The list of battles covered encompasses almost all of the major engagements that the British army took part in the Peninsular and 1815 campaign; Rolica, Vimiero, Coruņa, Talavera, Busaco, Albuera, Fuentes d’Oņoro, the sieges of Cuidad Rodrigo and Badajoz, Salamanca, Vittoria and finally Waterloo.
A pithy eye-witness account.
Author – Anthony Hamilton – (1779 - 1844)
