Remember you are an Englishman. A Biography of Sir Harry Smith. 1787-1860


Sir Harry Smith, was a soldier with one of the widest range of active services to be found in the records of the British Army’, observed the distinguished military historian, Sir John Fortescue. During the first half of the nineteenth century, when the war was still the greatest show on earth, this zestfully self-willed, impetuous, dare-devil Englishman could boast of having engaged in no less than 400 skirmishes, general actions, sieges and storms of fortified towns and camps in the Americas, Africa, India and in Europe against the armies of Napoleon.
