About the Author

RENÉ CHARTRAND was born in Montreal and educated in Canada, the USA and the Bahamas. A senior curator with Canada's National Historic Sites for nearly three decades, he is now a freelance writer and historical consultant. He has written many books, including some dozen Men-at-Arms titles - of which the most recent are three on the Spanish Army of the Napoleonic Wars - and the first two volumes of Canadian Military Heritage. He lives in Hull, Quebec, with his wife and two sons. BILL YOUNGHUSBAND was born in 1936; he was educated in Devon and studied at Newton Abbot College of Art. He has been interested in all things military since childhood, an interest compounded through the reading of authors such as G.A. Henty. In 1954 he joined the Life Guards and saw service in Egypt and Cyprus. Bill is a respected military illustrator of more than 15 years experience, and has illustrated many Osprey books including Campaign 48: Salamanca 1812 and Campaign 59: Vittoria 1813. He is married with one daughter and currently lives in Ireland.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is indeed a very interesting book that provides an overview Portuguese army organisation and uniforms during the campaigns against Napoleon's armies in the Peninsula.
The Portuguese army was an essential element that enabled the forces led by the future Duke of Wellington to defeat the invading french armies.
The book has, however, some minor mistakes. When the authors mention the names of some portuguese units, they write some names in Spanish. This must me corrected in thge next editions and I hope that these mistakes do not appear on the third volume.
Nevertheless it is a very good book.

Format: Paperback
I could not bring myself to purchase this book. The illustrations, which are the highlight of these series of books, are very static and uninteresting.
