    One thought on “Fatal Knot: The Guerrilla War in Navarre and the Defeat of Napoleon in Spain”

    1. This is one of the best pieces of original historical research into the Napoleonic era I've every read. Tone makes a real contribution to understanding things in a fresh way. It's just a shame he writes so dryly, particularly when he comes to the narrative rather than simply the analysis. He also lets himself down by betraying a quite unnecessary anti British bias. But no negative enough to pull the score down from 5 stars

    2. A very accessible history of the Spanish rising against Napoleon in the Peninsular War. Descriptions such as this one about complex microlevel processes are rare.
