Introduction by Nicholas Leadbetter; Foreword by David Chandler.  364 pp., frp (1841), 12 color illus. A giant in British military history, Le Marchant was the man who founded Sandhurst and the Army Staff College, designed the British cavalry saber, and who died leading the heavy cavalry in the climactic charge at Salamanca. This work not only describes the general's battle experiences from the French Revolutionary Wars to the Peninsula, but provides an overview of the geopolitics of the Napoleonic era and the evolution of British military thinking.
