"....deals with the storming of Badajoz, an epic action of the Peninsular War, which involved Wellington's infantry in some of the most savage hand-to-hand fighting of the whole Peninsular period. At appalling cost, in a nightmare battle which lasted throughout the night of the 6th April 1812, they hacked their way over the bodies of their dead and through the forbiddin g medieval walls, which were held with great courage and skill by a brave French and German garrison. Having successfully stormed the breaches, the battle-crazed army went berserk and the horrors of the sacking which followed, as much as t h e s u b l i m e courage of the attackers, have passed into legend. This account, drawn wholly from the vivid descriptions of the officers and common soldiers who fought at Badajoz, is the first to be written exclusively about the siege, the st or mi ng , a nd t he s ho cking events which followed." Previous owners small stamp on front pastedown, faint erased pencil check marks on the two bibliography pages, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket is price clipped, has ver y l igh t e dg e w rin kli ng, mi nor edge wear, minor rubbing. VG+/VG
