This ebook is purpose built and is proof-read and re-type set from the original to provide an outstanding experience of reflowing text for an ebook reader. Although biographies of Duke of Wellington abound, there few biographies of the generals that fought alongside him and executed his orders (or in some cases disobeyed them). The author John William Cole was well placed to provide the details of their lives being a long serving soldier in the British Army; his biographical sketches of the generals are accurate, pithy and although tactful he does not avoid dealing with their faults such as Beresford's less than impressive performance at Albuera. Battles such as Coruą, the Coa, Salamanca, Vittoria, and Waterloo are covered in excellent detail in the round, and particular focus is shown to the actions of the generals in question. This volume chronicles the lives of No. I. - SIR JOHN MOORE. No. II - SIR DAVID BAIRD. No. III. - THE MARQUESS OF ANGLESEY. No. IV. - SIR EDWARD PAGET. No. V. - LORD BERESFORD. No. VI. - MAJOR-GENERAL ROBERT CRAUFURD. No. VII. - SIR G. LOWRY COLE

Although biographies of Duke of Wellington abound, there few biographies of the generals that fought alongside him and executed his orders (or in some cases disobeyed them). The author John William Cole was well placed to provide the details of their lives being a long serving soldier in the British Army; his portraits are full of descriptive detail, without being too biased, he discusses the contentious issues as well as the victories they achieved. From the fiery, foul-mouthed Picton, respected but not loved by his men, to the quiet dignified "Daddy" Hill, who was adept at taking care of his own troops as well as surprising the French; the British generals were a diverse group worthy of individual attention that the author gave them
