DESCRIPTION: Previously untold story of a most remarkable soldier and hero of 
the Peninsular War. The story of Thomas Graham, Lord Lynedock has never 
been comprehensively told before, a Scottish landowner, politician, sportsman, 
traveller and military leader –  Highly Recommended

The author has provided a fascinating account of the life and times of one of Britain's 
most important unknown soldiers of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. 
It is more than a mystery why this accomplished leader has received little attention 
from military historians before.

There may be many soldiers and sailors of distinction in the British cause who have 
been neglected by history. The French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars required 
supreme efforts by British military personnel. Actions were fought on the World's 
Oceans and in land engagements across the World. For much of the period, Britain 
stood alone, save for a luke warm alliance with Sweden. Undeniably Nelson and 
Wellington were military titans. Their effective and heroic actions captured the 
imagination of Britons and have held that attention ever since. They have a deserved 
reputation, expanded by myth, mystery and romance. In the process they have cast a 
giant shadow across their many very able subordinates. This may go far to explaining 
why Lord Lynedock is largely unknown.

This versatile and fascinating individual was one of the many Scots who occupied 
important positions in the British military and did so much to make a host of 
victories possible. His story is absorbing, well told by the author and supported by 
a full colour photo-plate section. A must read book for all enthusiasts of the era.
