Synopsis

An important and vivid addition to the annals of military history, this is the extraordinary story of a man whom Wellington described as 'a very remarkable character'. It documents his capture by Marmont's dragoons, his escape, his journey to Paris and his stay in the enemy capital. Responsible for Wellington's 'secret intelligence', this brave, resourceful Highlander was appointed by him to be the first official Head of Intelligence in a British field force when Napoleon returned from Elba to renew the war.
