Wellington's Peninsular by Micheal Glover This slim book was first published in and my copy was part of the Pan British Battles series. Well known Napoleonic Wars historian Michael Glover knows his stuff and this is an excellent introduction to Wellington's campaigns in Portugal and Spain. Although it focuses on four battles; Busaco, Salamanca, Vitoria and Nivelle, about half of the book is about the campaigning in between. Glover, using numerous memoirs from the time, does a good job of giving an idea of what early 19th Century battles were like. But he faces the same problem as Wellington himself highlighted; namely it as as difficult to describe a battle as it would be to describe a fancy formal court ball.
Maybe the thug even used to be you, until you went straight. Women would refuse to go near any man with thug gish associations, for real—barely a thug could expect to get any action. I also made a thug chase movie with a bunch of my friends in high school. The Kremlin loses a useful propaganda tool, but it also eliminates a thug with a lot of Russian blood on his hands. The thug grinned wolfishly at me and then winked at his leader. The Thug , like many native Indians of his class—a low one—swathes his feet in strips of linen stuff. The thug is aware that loudness convinces sixty persons where reasoning convinces but one. Himself a member of the thug fraternity, he no doubt took swift vengeance on the informer for having betrayed its secrets. The name ' Thug ' signifies a 'Deceiver', and it will be generally admitted that this term was well earned.
