THIS MONTH'S ARTICLE:
Wellington's Mules
TENNANT R. J. , First Empire n°113 , July/August , 2010

Mules 'without pride of ancestry or hope of posterity' have served the fighting soldier for almost as long as the horse. R. J. Tennant, using contemporary accounts, letters and diary entries as well as later historical works, explores the role of the Equus mulus, otherwise known as the humble mule, in the Peninsular War. The article discusses their work, the prices paid for them, their muleteers and their role in the British, Portuguese and Spanish artillery and the commissariat. The article originally appeared in First Empire, issue n° 113.
