NEXT TO WELLINGTON: GENERAL SIR GEORGE MURRAY: The Story of a Scottish Soldier and Statesman, Wellington's Quartermaster General

NEXT TO WELLINGTON: GENERAL SIR GEORGE MURRAY: The Story of a Scottish Soldier and Statesman, Wellington's Quartermaster General
by Harding-Edgar, John

1-217940

Biography includes 24 color illustrations, 41 black and white illustrations, and 9 maps.

Young George Murray, born into a long established Perthshire family with both Jacobite and Hanoverian loyalties, would soon see action in the campaigns against Revolutionary France and Napoleon Bonaparte after obtaining his commission into 3rd Regiment of Foot Guards (the Scots Guards) in 1790. Murray served with distinction in the Low Countries, which were seen as essential to safeguarding Britain's trade links and in Ireland, where the constant threat of insurrection and invasion required a huge garrison. He accompanied General Abercromby to remove the French from Egypt, where Murray was in the first wave of the landing force at Aboukir, one of the great British military successes.

Becoming one of the new 'Scientific' officers, Murray was the brains behind the plans to take a number of West Indian islands from the French, before settling into his career in the Quartermaster General's department. He made a name for himself in the controversial bombardment of Copenhagen in 1807, which resulted in the capture of the entire Danish fleet, the first operation in which Murray and Arthur Wellesley (later the Duke of Wellington) fought together.
