Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Field Marshal Colin Campbell, 1st Baron Clyde GCB, KSI (20 October 1792 - 14 August 1863) was a British Army officer from Scotland who led the Highland Brigade in the Crimea and was in command of the 'Thin red line' at the battle of Balaclava. He later commanded the relief army in the Indian Mutiny of 1857. He was born Colin Macliver, the eldest of the four children of John Macliver, a carpenter in Glasgow, Scotland, and his wife Agnes Campbell. He was educated at the High School of Glasgow, but the age of ten, his mother's brother Colonel John Campbell placed him in the Royal Military and Naval Academy at Gosport. When he was only fifteen and a half, his uncle presented him to the Duke of York. The Duke enlisted the boy under the surname of Campbell, which he adopted for life.show more
