A view of the campaigns of Wellington's famous German troopsIn the ranks of the red-coated soldiery of the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars there were none more highly regarded by all than the men of the King's German Legion. These were men-many of them Hanoverians-whose motherlands had been over run by Napoleon's French forces in their domination of Europe and the smaller German states in particular. These were fine troops, well disciplined and highly motivated by their enmity towards the French and their desire to liberate and return to their homes. This book, originally published anonymously, but now known to have been written by John Hering, reveals the King's German Legion through his eyewitness experiences on campaign in Denmark, in Portugal and Spain and on the battlefield including the decisive conflict at Talavera
