Mr. Beard's Regency Tour Day 18: Guerrillas and the Peninsular War: What's the French Word for Ulcer?

This is part of my continuing series on Regency England and Georgian England. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, please check out my archive here.


Napoleon's failures in Russia are well-known, but even before that invasion, the "unstoppable" French Imperial Army struggled in the Peninsular War against another set of foes that weren't helped nearly as much by the weather.

Over at the English Historical Fiction Authors Blog, I discuss the guerrilla forces that gave Napoleon such trouble.
