The Peninsular War Paintings of Christa Hook first marketed as 'Episodes from the Peninsular War'
“With the passage of more than another century, we still have the writings of the veterans to illuminate the period; and through the remarkable genius of Christa Hook, we have a visual record that is surely as accurate as we can approach through the mists of time.”
