Napper Tandy invaded Ireland with the French, was an ambassador for the United Irishmen in the States, was arrested in Hamburg by the English a stone’s throw ahead of Napoleon’s armies, and was sentenced to death by the English but never executed, a fact which may well have denied him the martyrdom and fame which came to others like Wolfe Tone and Robert Emmett. He was a Brigadier General in the French Republican Army, and received both salary and pension as such until the day he died in his bed, aged 63, on August 24th. 1803 in Bordeaux. This book is his story.
