History of the War in the Peninsula, under Napoleon - Vol. II
General Maximilien Foy was a renowned and experienced French general with a long and distinguished career. An artilleryman like his master Napoleon , he fulfilled his duty to France despite disagreeing with Napoleon, and fought across Europe from Switzerland, Germany, Portugal and Spain. He spent a major part of his career fighting in the Peninsular armies at Busaco and with Masséna in Portugal. His military career came to an end after heroic fighting at Waterloo in 1815, after which he became involved in politics and writing.Foy set about writing a history of the Peninsular War, which had been covered in great detail by British and Spanish writers but not so well by those of France. Although his untimely death in 1825 cut short his endeavour to two books, they are a valuable addition to the literature on the period, filling the gap of a French perspective on the bloody "Spanish Ulcer".Author -- Général de Division Comte Maximilien Foy, 1775-1825.Editor --Élisabeth Augustine (née Daniels) FoyTranslator -- AnonText taken, whole and complete, from the edition published in 1827, London, by Treuttel and Würtz Original Page Count - xii and 608 pages.Illustrations -- 1 Facsimile.
