From the cover: “Thomas Henry Browne obtained an ensign’s commission in the 23rd Royal Welch Fusiliers in 1805. Some twenty-one months later he began a long service overseas for most of nine years from 1807 to 1816. During this period Browne participated in the seizure of the Danish fleet at Copenhagen in 1807, the capture of Martinique from the French in 1809, and the ebb and flow of the campaign against Napoleon’s army in the Iberian Peninsula, 1810 to 1814. During the period of his overseas service, Browne kept this journal in which he noted in a vivid and trenchant style the day-to –day events occurring in his own and other units, whether in camp, on the march, or in the heat of battle.”
