Abstract:

This ebook is purpose built and is proof-read and re-type set from the original to provide an outstanding experience of reflowing text for an ebook reader. Lt.-Colonel Leach served with some distinction during the Peninsular War and Waterloo campaign with the 95th Rifles, leaving his excellent memoirs "Rough Sketches of the Life of an Old Soldier". This tome is set in the underworld, where old comrades of the Peninsular War meet to discuss various incidents, anecdotes and war-stories. As the Author points out in his introduction, the majority of the stories are absolutely true, and they have probably been rendered in this way to protect the identity of the real soldiers. An intriguing read.
