From humble beginnings in Glasgow, Colin Campbell (1792–1863) rose to become Scotland’s finest general and a favourite of Queen Victoria. In a 50-year career he fought through the Peninsula, the Crimea, China and India and still found time to contain a slave revolt, a Chartist rebellion and Ireland’s Tithe War. This biography offers a radical reinterpretation of Campbell – the first working-class field marshal, with strong humanitarian leanings and an instinct for harnessing the power of the press.
