Notes: Strange was a Major General in the British Royal Artillery. Most of his autobiography pertains to his involvement with the British army in India and China. However, there are a few chapters that provide his account of the Riel Resistance. His account is, of course, unsympathetic to the Métis. His critics have referred to the book "as an amusing work of fiction," even though the Riel section is based on official correspondence.
