About Author

G. R. Gleig

George Robert Gleig was a Scottish soldier, military writer, and priest who died on July 9, 1888. Gleig was born in the Scottish city of Stirling. George Gleig (1753-1840, Bishop of Brechin from October 1808) and Janet, née Hamilton, youngest daughter of Robert Hamilton of Kilbrackmont, were his parents. Gleig began his schooling at Stirling Grammar School. At the battle of Vitoria on 21 June 1813, Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington scored his final great victory in Spain over the French. One month later, George Robert Gleig, a young divinity student, turned down a scholarship to Balliol College to join Wellington's army as an Ensign in the 85th Light Infantry. His father, the Bishop of Brechin at the time, gave him £20, a large sum, albeit he notes that the rate at which he could acquire easily exchangeable gold pieces was terrible - he had to pay 6s for each gold dollar, and £5 for a doubloon. Wellington made his maiden foray into France on October 7. Napoleon abdicated on April 6, 1814, but Wellington didn't find out until April 12. By then, he had fought and won the key battle of the campaign at Toulouse on April 10.
