216 pp, 9" H. B&w plates, drawings, maps. Wraparound jacket art reproduces an aquatint of the death of Sir John Moore by T. Sutherland. "(The first book) to be devoted exclusively to the Battle of Corunna and to the short campaign which preceded it. Mr Hibbert has made extensive use of the many eye-witness accounts which survive in the form of official despatches, histories, diaries, memoirs and letters. With the aid of these, he not only shows a remarkable understanding of Sir John Moore and his fellow-officers, of their conflicting characters and views, but he also provides, through the eyes of officers and men alike, a horrifying picture of the hardships of this brief and bitter campaign. The narra-tive is made the more vivid by the numerous illustrations from contemporary paintings and engravings, and by the five specially prepared maps." Previous owner's small name stamp on front pastedown, top corner clipped off the front free endpaper, a few small light soiling marks on preliminaries preceding frontispiece, light edge wear - mostly on bottom edge. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has one small edge chip with small tear, very light edge wear - mostly on spine edges, small scuff on spine, browning at top/bottom edges of flaps, light browning on spine, a 4" pencil line and a 4" faint scratch on rear panel, protected in a mylar sleeve.
