General John Money was the only English general to serve in the armies of Revolutionary or Napoleonic France. He had the misfortune to accept a commission in July 1792 and arrived in Paris in time for the excitement of 10 August – the slaughter of the Swiss Guard at the Tuileries. Read his personal account, originally published in 1794, of those bloody events as well as his operations as a divisional commander in the north of France against the Hessians and Austrians under Dillon, Dumouriez and Valence. Short biographies of the various revolutionary generals, explanatory notes on various units, and other events have been added to ensure the reader’s complete understanding of Money’s discussion of events.
