This review is from: Subaltern: Chronicle of the Peninsular War: A Chronicle of the Peninsular War (Kindle Edition)
A charming little narrative of a young officer in the field. Apart from the domestic aspects, it adds little to my understanding of the campaign at all. His perspectives are those of a young subaltern with a way with words, and the narrative says more about his way of life (and minimal involvement in great affairs) than anything of substance about strategy.
Perhaps that's what it should be. A young man's diary. Nothing more.
