    Sir John Moore is one of those people who are both famous and forgotten. True, there are three monuments to his life. One is in St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. Another is in his native city of Glasgow. The third monument is in the Spanish city of Corunna.   This book is an attempt to present the chief events in the last campaign of Sir John Moore.

Late in Sir John Moore found himself virtually alone with his small British army deep inside Spain. The armies of his Spanish allies had been overwhelmed and he faced a victorious French force under the Emperor Napoleon. He had little option but to order a retreat to the port of Corunna. This became the most.
