Charles de Salaberry (1778-1829) was a brilliant military figure who played a vital role in the War of 1812. A French-Canadian, he attained both rank and honour in the British army. He was a hero of Chateauguay and instrumental in the formation of the Canadian Voltigeurs and a respected advocate of French-Canadian rights. This book paints a vivid picture of a man whose pride and honour were part of an ancient family tradition, whose accomplishments were unique in the history of Lower Canada.

A good, solid basic biography. All bones but not much flesh unfortunately. Everything you need to know, but the little details that bring a person to life are mostly missing. Originally published in 1984, this is an unrevised later (2012?) reprint. Read full review
