A propos de cet article

Xii, 128 pages, cloth, DJ, very good. From the dust jacket: "Rifleman Harris needs little introduction. His recollections have become, deservedly, one of the most popular military books of all time. The vivid picture that he paints of life as an ordinary soldier during the Peninsular War has seldom been bettered. In this new edition Christopher Hibbert, the distinguished historian, has written an entertaining foreword as well as providing copious new footnotes." B28-5; 128 pages. N° de réf. du libraire 28295
