The Classic history of Napoleonic War in Spain and Portugal.

Many public domain copies of these volumes have been scanned without opening up the foldout maps. With persistance I found versions of all but one of the series online scanned WITH full maps. If anyone has a PDF copy of Volume V showing the maps please upload it and let me know, ok? I'd appreciate it.

OCR for these uploads now enables access & search capability for text.

PREFACE
IT is many years since an attempt has been made inEngland to deal with the general history of thePeninsular War. Several interesting and valuable diariesor memoirs of officers who took part in the great strugglehave been published of late

, but no writer of thepresent generation has dared to grapple with the detailsof the whole of the seven years of campaigning that liebetween the

and Toulouse. Napier's splendidwork has held the field for sixty years. Meanwhile anenormous bulk of valuable material has been accumulating in English, French, and Spanish, which has practically remained unutilized.'
