This is the second and final volume of the Wickwires' definitive
biography of Cornwallis. It details Corwallis's work in India, his
contributions in Britain as master general of ordnance, his tenure
as lord lieutenant and commander in chief in Ireland, and his
diplomacy in negotiating the peace of Amiens. Through Cornwallis's
career, the authors show how the British made important decisions
that affected the empire for the century to follow.
