Synopsis of With Wellington in the Pyrenees:

”The story of the operations in the western Pyrenees is perhaps not so generally well known as are some other phases of the Peninsular War.

It is, however, full of interest as well for the general reader who finds pleasure in history as for the soldier. Never were the stubborn valour of the British soldier of all ranks of that old army and the quickness and decision of its great commander more signally displayed than in those nine days of desperate and almost continuous fighting amoungst the ridges and valleys of those mountains.
