In their writings about the Peninsular campaigns, most British writers have based their work solely on sources relating to the operations of Wellington's Anglo-Portuguese army, and have therefore tended to present a distorted picture of the struggle. The author of this study aims to fill this gap in British historiography by focusing on the role of the Spanish army in the Peninsular War. This study aims also to suggest why Spaniards were unable to satisfy their allies even in an auxiliary capacity, let alone to liberate themselves from foreign domination, and to examine the impact of that failure upon the later course of Spanish history.
