SIR WILLIAM FRANCIS PATRICK NAPIER
Irish general and historian
(1785 - 1860)

Napoleon's troops fought in bright fields where every helmet caught some beams of glory; but the British soldier conquered under the cold shade of aristocracy.
      - History of the Peninsular War (II, 401),
        (ed. 1851) [Soldiers]

That puts it not unto the touch
  To win or lose it all.
      - Montrose and the Covenanters--Montrose's Poems
         (no. 1, vol. II, p. 566),
        version of part of work by Marquis of Montrose
        [Fate : Loss]
