Charles, Second Earl Cornwallis, (1738-1805) becomes for the first time the subject of a modern biography - an account of his life from his schooldays at an Eaton no less fantastic than the British Army, up to his surrender in 1781 at Yorktown, with which the American War of Independence ended. It is a full-scale study of the first half of his career, well researched from original sources, and written with a lively narrative sweep and instinct for the telling episode.
