Robert Craufurd was one of the finest officers in Wellington’s Peninsular Army. He was also the most controversial. ‘Black Bob’ to his men, had led the Light Division from 1808-when it was still a brigade-until his death at Ciudad Rodrigo in 1812.This book tells the story of ‘Black Bob’ from his early days in Europe, India and Ireland, to South America and finally to the peninsula. it examines the reasons behind his temper and sees how this- and his desire to erase the bitterness of Buenos Aires-often got him into ‘scrapes’ in the field which otherwise should have been avoided and which clouded an otherwise glorious military career.
