I would appreciate it if one of the list members could inform me of the latest and most authoritative works on the development of the British army under Wellington during the Peninsular War. I have Michael Glover's books on the topic. Thank you in advance, Frank Maas
I will be moving to Moscow in July on a Fulbright-Hays. I've had a terrible time trying to find housing in Moscow. I've contacted a couple dozen real estate or housing agencies, responded to newspaper ads, talked to staff at the US Embassy and posted on ex-pat and international student forums in Moscow. Thus far, no luck. Part of the problem seems to be that I will only be in Moscow for eight months. Another seems to be some wariness in offering a lease to an American, given the ongoing situation in Ukraine. Any recommendations?
