The article looks at the published personal accounts of several soldiers (including Robert Ker Porter, illustrated) who fought in Portugal during the Peninsular War. These writers were particularly concerned with the attitude of the Portuguese people towards the British army, the battles they took part in, the Convention of Sintra, the reorganisation of the Portuguese army under British supervision and with the atrocities committed by all parties.
