The Liberal Wars (1828-1834)



Excerpt:

 

Accounts of the Peninsular War seldom progress far without some reference to one or more of the three Napier brothers whose exploits in battle were so often brought to Wellington's notice. All three became Generals. The eldest son, Charles, is perhaps most remembered for the punning signal "peccavi" (I have sinned) attributed to him by Punch after his taking of Sind. The author, descended from the grandfather of the three brothers, explores the military life of Charles in detail.
