This work is a detailed study of Wellington's army as the title suggests. It is scholarly and important for anyone who is doing serious research. It is not only authoritative but also interesting if not extremely readable. It is a descriptive piece on Wellington and his army and not Napoleon and his army. It does give excellent quotes from the French side in regard to the British.
I was surprised at the details on the Portuguese support units.There are brief battle accounts and their importance.
Importantly it gives information on everything from battles to supply trains and clergy. There is are brief bios of Wellington's subordinates and their abilities in regard to his own. Wellington is brought to life through his management style with the army and its leaders. You have not researched Wellington or the period if you have not read this book.
