(This book cannot be returned.)

An exceptional first-hand account written by a Sergeant of the 7th Royal Fusiliers who served and fought in most of the famous battles and sieges of the Peninsular Campaign during the Napoleonic Wars, including such battles as Talavera, Busaco, Albuera, Ciudad Rodrigo, Badajoz, Vittoria and the battles for the Pyrenees.

The author, Sergeant John Cooper, returned to England upon the surrender of French forces and was due for discharge but was shipped to America to fight in the battle of New Orleans in 1815. Cooper only wrote what he saw himself and was able to verify from the regimental Orderly Book.
