George Robert Gleig : The Subaltern

Uvedale Price to Elizabeth Barrett, 20 December 1826: 'I will ask you [...] whether you have ever read the Subaltern? It is said, by military men to be a very exact as well as lively account of the D. of Wellington's campaign in the Pyrenees [...] a great part of it is interesting even to so unmilitary a man as myself [...] the whole account of the attack & capture of St Sebastian at the beginning of the work, is most striking in all its circumstances and & all its detail [goes on to make detailed commentary, focusing especially upon description of thunderstorm in chapter 3]'.

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Uvedale Price      Print: Book
