1 Rathbone, Julian (ed). WELLINGTON'S WAR: HIS PENINSULAR DESPATCHES.
London Michael Joseph 1984 First edition 
340pp, maps & illustrations. Fine in dj. Wellington's despatches, unlike those of many commanders, are so numerous that reading them gives one the sense of a continuous narrative, a condition enhanced by Wellington's lively prose style. These are not dry archives--they come alive on every page. Later in life Wellington said 'I have been much amused at reading them over--the energy and action are quite as great as ever...They are valuable, more so than Caesar's Commentaries because Caesar wrote afterward for effect. These are a collection of instruments used at the time--they were all written in my own hand.' Unless you can afford the full 13 volume set($2000), this is the book to buy.
