Lieutenant General Sir George Prevost, British Army (1767-1816)

An excellent administrator with a long military career in the West Indies and North America, Prevost was cool, controlled, and cautious. He followed a defensive strategy throughout the war, but his ventures into the field at Sackets Harbor in 1813 and Plattsburgh in 1814 ended badly and blighted what was otherwise a successful performance in a very difficult position.
