An Interesting Memoir of George Weale: Formerly of the 29th, Or Worcestershire Regiment of Foot, and Son of the Late Rev. Geo. Weale, A.B., ... from the Time of His Leaving His Father at the Age of Fourteen, Until the Memorable Battle of Waterloo, ...
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 Coruña, 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. Author – John William Cole (????-1870)
