Top critical review
on 22 May 2014
It's enjoyable to read and it gives a real feel of what life was like during this campaign. It's written in a manner that you would think some of the soldiers featured have been interviewed recently, which I thought was quite refreshing... specially if you are move accustomed to reading about more contemporary wars. The one thing I didn't like was the naming of Spanish and Portuguese of towns and battlefields was quite bad... Not sure if this is due to poor sources, of if the research was a bit sloppy in this area. It would be a nice touch and would have added a bit more credibility to the whole thing.
