Heroes of the Hour: Brief Moments in Military Glory
Bryan Perrett. Here are 13 true tales of men who were heroes of their time, but have since been largely -- & unjustly -- forgotten. They played their parts in the American War of Independence, with Napoleon in North Italy, at Marengo & Waterloo, in the Crimea, the India Mutiny, the American Civil War, at the British Residency in Kabul, with Kitchener in the Sudan, & on the North West Frontier. They were mostly professional soldiers; one, Lt. Walter Hamilton, fought the Kabul mob to the death, & took 600 of the enemy with him. Another, Major Gen. Lew Wallace, primarily a lawyer & politician, commanded a division at the Battle of Shiloh, but is remembered now only as the author of Ben Hur. This book restores to life their brief moments of military glory. Illustrated.
