More Description

A personal narrative of a fighting regiment
There were many famous regiments in Wellington's renowned 'Old Peninsular Army'. Perhaps the 28th Regiment of Foot was not exceptional, but it certainly could hold its head up among the very finest of them. This book begins after the regiment had returned from other outstanding service in Egypt and we shortly find it on campaign again in Portugal and Spain pitted against its perennial foe the blue coated infantry of the Emperor Napoleon's French Army. The author of this book was a serving officer throughout the events recounted within in its pages so the text rings true with authenticity and valuable detail as well as with the obvious pride he felt for his own corps. The Slashers' so called from days gone by when the regiment carried swords served with distinction throughout the Peninsular War and through the campaign in southern France until the abdication of Napoleon and the restoration of the Bourbon monarchy. However, Napoleon had not yet done with them nor they with him, for they were destined to meet again on the ever memorable fields of Waterloo where once again the regiment would perform true to its traditions and to the finest standards of the British Army.
