Just read Robert Wilson's, 'A Small Death in Lisbon.' It won the CWA Gold Dagger for fiction - it is an extremely good book, if rather explicitly violent in places. It does give you an insight into the country's role in WW2, the Nazis and the PIDE. I am going to re-read!

To understand the history of Portugal during the era of the Napoleonic wars when Portugal was an ally of the British, I suggest " The Spanish Bride   by Georgette Heyer.Much of it of course in Portugal. This is based on the true story of officer Harry Smith and his wartime marriage to Juana.   History, adventure , and romance! Btw, the city of " Ladysmith" in SAfrica is named after her.
