GALLANT GENERAL

A life of Tadeuez Kosoiuszko, the Polish officer who fought ably and with distinction for the cause of American freedom from Britain. The author tells of Kosoiuszko's life as the son of a petty Polish nobleman, as a Cadet, as a military science student in France, and as a fighter for liberty everywhere, throughout his life. A doleful romantic love story of frustration and closed convent gates gives another side of the dashing hero's life. This is translated from the Polish by Samuel Sorgenstein, and the rendition may give the prose a somewhat lacklustre quality --although it may have come from the original.
