Adventurer, army officer, eccentric, humorist, practical joker and rake, George Hanger served as equerry to the Prince of Wales in the late eighteenth century and, as a member of the Prince's fast set, actively participated for over a decade in the dissolute life to which the coterie was accustomed. In doing so he added appreciably to his already notorious reputation. Eventually, says his obituary, "as the Prince advanced in life, the eccentric manners of the Colonel became somewhat too free and coarse for the royal taste" and he was dismissed. A rollicking account of his life, this work also includes his service as a British officer during the American Revolutionary War.
