Napoleon's occupation of the Iberian peninsula embroiled him in a protracted and costly war against British, Spanish and Portuguese forces ultimately led by one of history's greatest commanders -- the Duke of Wellington. Yet it also introduced a new dimension to warfare, for Napoleon's 'Spanish ulcer' became a bitter seven-year struggle against peoples inflamed by nationalism. Thus, while Wellington achieved successive victories in open battle, a parallel guerrilla war exacted a heavy toll of its own on the invaders. No mere sideshow to the other campaigns of the period, the Peninsular War made a significant contribution to Napoleon's eventual downfall.

"The Napoleonic Wars saw almost two decades of brutal fighting, from the frozen wastelands of Russia to the wilderness of the Peninsula, and from Egypt to the bloody battlefield of Waterloo. In the almost two decades of battle, Napoleon led his Grande Armee and his allies against a varying coalition of nations. This book provides a comprehensive guide to all the major armies of the Napoleonic Wars - France, Britain, Austria, Prussia, Russia, Spain, and Portugal - as well as many of the minor powers. The changes in the armies over the period, the organization, the infantry, cavalry, and artillery are all covered, along with illustrations of the often glorious uniforms worn into battle." --Book Jacket.

"Thomas Henry Browne obtained an ensign's commission in the 23rd Royal Welch Fusiliers in 1805. Some twenty-one months later he began a long service overseas for most of nine years from 1807 to 1816. During this period Browne participated in the seizure of the Danish fleet at Copenhagen in 1807, the Capture of Martinique from the French in 1809, and the ebb and flow of the campaign against Napoleon's army in the Iberian Peninsula, 1810 to 1814. During this latter period he served on Wellington's Headquarters staff in the Adjutant-General's office, and was privileged to observe the great commander from a close point of vantage." "During the period of his overseas service, Browne kept a journal in which he noted in a vivid and trenchant style the day-to-day events occurring in his own and other units, whether in camp, on the march, or in the heat of battle. His staff position enabled him to see the broad sweep of tactical decisions, while his remarkable gifts as an observer bring to life the officers and men who composed the armies of the day, depicting them in a succession of graphic images. Few military journals of any period have captured the soldier's life with such immediacy, like a first-rate war correspondent's report from the battle front." "After the defeat of Napoleon in 1815, Browne continued to rise in the military hierarchy, retiring with a knighthood and the rank of Lieutenant-General. He died in 1855 aged 68." "In this edition the Journal has been faithfully reproduced by Professor Roger Buckley, who has written a full introduction placing Thomas Henry Browne in the context of his times, evoking the customs and disciplines of the British regular army in the age of Wellington, and sketching in the historical background to the conflicts in which the army was engaged. Each section of the Journal is similarly introduced by the editor, who has also supplied a detailed biographical appendix, full notes and bibliography and a representative selection of illustrations."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The present-day welfare state crisis in the Nordic countries is a major inspiration behind this anthology, written by nine senior and junior scholars involved in intellectural and social history, women and gender history in Sweden, Norway and Denmark. By tracing the multivaried role of women as welfare producers and distributors in the period 1780-1930 and in metropolitan and provincial contexts this anthology argues that philanthropy both predated, co-exited with and shaped the formation of the "classical" welfare states. This anthology enters a fascinating world of associations, societies and homes to depict the direct interactions of volunteering women and their clients, their goals and ambitions in an age of early industrial capitalism and political modernization.
