A famous account-two volumes complete in one book Grattan's account of his service with the famous 88th-The Connaught Rangers-the hardest fighting and possibly least appreciated regiment in Wellington's famous Peninsula Army fighting Napoleon's French, is well known and highly regarded by scholars and students of the Napoleonic Wars alike. For those who may be unfamiliar with it, this is a memoir full of incident and action, well written and charmingly enhanced by the many characterisations of and anecdotes about the irrepressible Irish soldiery who made up its ranks. This edition, at some 560 pages, should not be confused with edited versions in print; it is quite different. Grattan's account originally ran to two volumes and later editors have seen fit to considerably cut the text; had that editing only removed uninteresting, irrelevant or unentertaining material there would have been no purpose in this 'restored' edition. The Leonaur editors are pleased to offer the entire 'Adventures in the Connaught Rangers' unedited-both vital volumes in one edition for your enjoyment. Available in soft cover and hard back with dust jacket for collectors.
