Many people accuse of Wellington of being a defensive general – a soldier who was only in his element when defending steep ridges. But how true is that opinion? For this week’s “5 minute Friday” video, my friend and fellow military history geek Marcus Cribb (Twitter – @mcribbHistory ) tries his best to answer the question…What do you think? Do you agree with his conclusions?

To read more of Marcus’s thoughts please visit his website.

Also, to read more about Wellington’s early battles in the Peninsular War, then you may want to pick up a copy of my book on the Peninsular War (1808-1809).
