In continuation of the last post, here are a few more links to free downloads of books about Portugal around the time of the French Invasions. The 1st two ones, I have added them later to the previous post, but I'll repeat them here.
There are a lot more, you just have to follow the link at the bottom of the page. Prepare yourself, it's addictive!

  • ·        COMBE, William, "A History of Madeira : with a series of twenty-seven colored engravings, illustrative of the costumes, manners, and occupations of the inhabitants of the Island", 1821

  • ·         "Le Monde, Histoire de Tous Les Peuples Depuis Les Temps Les Plus Recules Jusqu'a Nos Jours, Portugal, Espagne et Les Pays-Bas", Several authors, 1838

  • ·         BECKFORD, William, "Recollections of an excursion to the monasteries of Alcobaça and Batalha", pub 1835


   And, as said above, here's the link to much, much more, including writing by Junot, the 43rd Monmouthshire Light Infantry  and other military memoirs.
