Salamanca, 1812, Ian Fletcher

Osprey Military Campaign

A comprehensive and easy to read study of what many consider the key battle in the Peninsular War. Once Wellington crushed the French at Salamanca, the British and their allies would have the upper hand in the long drawn out struggle to come. Written by Ian Fletcher one of the leading experts in this field it is packed full of dramatic colour plates, modern photos of a battlefield which has changed little in nearly 200 years, 3-D maps and illustrations. This is one of the best Osprey books on this period and well worth a look.
