"This is the story of the great Peninsular War, by one who fought through it him-self, and in no history has a more chivalrous and manly account been given of one's enemy. Indeed, Napier seems to me to push it too far, for his admiration appears to extend not only to the gallant soldiers who opposed him, but to the character and to the ultimate aims of their leader. " --Through the Magic Door, p. 184
