Haythornthwaite, Philip. "Junot's Victory in Portugal, 1808"
Divergence: 1808 CE
What if: Arthur Wellesley arrived at Maceira to find not reinforcements but a ship carrying one of his superiors. Also, Junot concentrated his attack on the British left front.
Summary: How the less imaginative command of British troops at Vimeiro could have led to the early ejection of the British expeditionary force from Portugal, leaving France a free hand in its Iberian campaign.
