The Sharpest Fight: The 95th Rifles at Tarbes, 20th March 1814 by Michael Ayrton
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The penultimate battle of the Peninsular War was fought at Tarbes on the 20th March 1814. Here, three battalions of the dashing and legendary 95th rifles, grouped together for the first time, fought as one cohesive brigade entirely equipped with rifles. This action, unique in the Peninsular War, led to a victory over an experienced French division and demonstrated that these highly trained sharpshooters of the famous Light Division could match musket armed heavy infantry many times their number. In this book, the authors provide an account of the battle in all its detail, complete with eyewitness accounts, some never previously published, and place the battle in the context of the general campaign in South West France in the closing stages of the war.
