Home Forums Horse and Musket Napoleonic Wellington Reply To: Wellington


I’m not an anglophile and don’t see Wellington as the Second Coming, but he was definitely one of the best British army commanders. One doesn’t acquire his record of battlefield victories by being indifferent. He was caught wrong-footed sometimes and had a couple tough retreats back to Portugal, but he was never beaten in battle. I can’t see any of the other available commanders matching him, and that includes Moore if he had survived.

This too shall pass
