To most students of the Peninsular War the name Robert Craufurd usually evokes images of a battle-hardened martinet, flogging his men across Portugal and Spain, driving them hard and generally taking a tough stance against anything and everything that did not meet with his own strict disciplinarian code. However, it is only half of the picture of this most complex character and it is the other half that has never before been revealed. His own letters, written to his wife, are published here for the first time ever, revealing him as a far more complex character, the man being far more different the soldier. Follow his controversial career from India, Ireland, South America and, finally, to the Iberian Peninsula where he achieved immortality as one of Wellington's finest generals.
