Anton, James Retrospect of a Military Life, during the most Eventful Period of the Late War Quartermaster-Sergeant. The review quoted below is combined with a review of the initial English publication of Two Years Before the Mast. Reviewed: Monthly Review 1841 p.341 [ And when on perusal of such a man's retrospect the reader finds as in the instance before us, that the narrator is a plain, unostentatious, unromantic and sensible man; that he has no marvellous adventures to record; or at least that he does not consider his experience, -- whatever a sprig of gentility might have felt, if subjected to similar casualties, or said if describing them, -- much out of the common way at the same time that his story furnishes a truth looking and excellent picture of a common soldier, or a non commissioned officer's life, the book must be welcomed not merely as in some respects a novelty but as containing an instructive narrative ] Author/Title searches: Abebooks Alibris Biblio Full Text Online: Google Books

H., T. [?Thomas Howell] A Soldier of the Seventy-First. The Journal of a Soldier of the Highland Light Infantry 1806-1815 Various attributions exist, including Thomas Howell and Thomas Pococke. Originally published anonymously in 1819. The author served in the ranks, enlisting at the age of 16 in a fit of pique, he having rebelled against his doting parents by attempting a career as an actor. Failure on the stage and a chance encounter with a recruiting party led to his enlistment, and 9 years very active service. Educated and intelligent, a bit of an outsider, this provides a fascinating glimpse of the life of the common solder in the Peninsular. Highly recommended Author/Title searches: Abebooks Alibris Biblio Full Text Online: Gutenberg

Moyle Sherer, G. Recollections of the Peninsula Recommended. Describes life campaigning more than individual battles. Reviewed: Quarterly Review Vol 30 p.61 [ The anonymous writer of the Recollections aspires only to relate what he 'saw, thought, and felt as a man. a traveller, and a soldier for five interesting years;' he gives no regular memoir of the operations of the conflicting armies, and displays little acquaintance with the scientific departments of his profession. He describes -- and apparently wishes to describe -- nothing beyond the part which a regimental officer could act, and the view which he might under common circumstances, and without much exertion, enjoy of the great events passing around him ] Author/Title searches: Abebooks Alibris Biblio Full Text Online: Hathi
