Maurice Tiernay

by Charles James Lever

The tale begins with tumbrils and Robespierre. Tiernay, part-French, part-Irish, does well, but against orders, at the passage of the Rhine, and is led out to be shot for indiscipline, though he is spared. Next he shares in the invasion of Ireland, and ends up in Austria as one of Napoleon's colonels.
