Dumouriez

Dumouriez, a French general, born at Cambrai, “a wiry, elastic, unwearied man ... creature,” as he boasted in his old age, “of God and his own sword ... on the whole, one of Heaven's Swiss”; took when already grey to the Revolution and fought on its behalf; gained the battles of Valmy and Jemmapes; conquered Belgium, but being distrusted, passed over to the ranks of the enemies of France; a man really “without faith; wanted above all things work, work on any side”; died an exile in England (1739-1824). See Carlyle'sFrench Revolution.”
