Campaign of the Left Wing of the Allied Army in the Western Pyrenees and South of France in the Years 1813-14 Under Field-marshal the Marquess of Wellington

By Batty, Robert

London: Ken Trotman Ltd. Hardcover. 0853685967 Hand-numbered copy #123 of 250. Facsimile reprint of the 1823 first edition. "Illustrated by a detailed plan of the operations, and numerous plates of moutain and river scenery." - title page. Fold-out map at title page. "The history of European warfare affords few examples of battles which have been more important in their results, or more brilliant in their achievement, than that of Vitoria. The campaign too which preceded it was distinguished by a series of the most able manoeuvres, compelling the enemy to retreat from the frontiers of Portugal to a defensive position behind the Ebro, without being able to oppose the allies in any general action. Thus, in the short space of one month, the influence which the French had held over the Peninsula, during several years, was brought to a fatal crisis." - pages 1-2. Clean, bright and unmarked with negligible wear. An excellent copy. . Fine. 1983. Facsimile Reprint.
