Salamanca was the most decisive battle of the entire Peninsular War. Wellington smashed Marmont's French Army and his pursuit of its shattered remnants led to the famous cavalry charge of the King's German Legion at Garcia Hernandez. There would be two more yers of sieges and hard fighting before the Iron Duke crossed the Pyrenees into France, but
from Salamanca the British and their Portuguese and Spanish allies always had the upper hand. In this book Ian Fletcher describes the brutal fight for Salamanca in fascinating detail.
