Editorial Reviews


"Farmar's most remarkable feat was survival. In a time when soldiers and officers were dropping like flies from both disease and bullets, Farmar emerged unscathed. . . . Farmar commanded the expedition that ascended the Mississippi to occupy Fort Chartes in the Illinois country—a feat in itself."—Journal of American History

"Robert Farmar was the kind of soldier with whom the British built an empire. . . . This is an excellent study of military administration in the first British Empire and of the tremendous difficulty it involved."—American Historical Review
