Description

Zusammenfassung In 1823, Lord Amherst was appointed Governor-general of Bengal, on the eve of the expensive and demoralising First Anglo-Burmese War, in which his ineffectual command was a contributing factor. This flattering 1894 biography, co-written by Thackeray's elder daughter, is a fascinating example of the late-Victorian presentation of these events.
