SURRENDER AT NEW ORLEANS: General Sir Harry Smith in the Peninsula and America

SURRENDER AT NEW ORLEANS: General Sir Harry Smith in the Peninsula and America
by Rooney, David

1-206590

General Sir Harry Smith won the lifelong respect and affection of the Duke of Wellington while serving in the Peninsula War. With the French defeated, Harry left with the British expedition to America in 1814, and witnessed the burning of the White House. The fiery Admiral Cochrane raged bitterly 'I am sorry you left a house standing in Washington - depend on it, it is a mistaken mercy.'

Later, Harry joined Wellington's brother-in-law, Ned Pakenham, in the invasion of Louisiana. On 8 January 1815, they attacked General Jackson's well prepared positions protecting New Orleans. A resounding defeat for the British, in which Pakenham was killed, it fell to Harry to take part in the surrender to General Jackson, and then to convey the dismal news to London. Approaching England, he heard the dramatic news of Napoleon's escape, which led to Harry's breathtaking experience at Waterloo.

The book covers the extraordinary lives of Harry and wife Juana, including their achievements and legacy in South Africa, and Harry's model victory in India in 1846, which made him a hero to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
