Originally published under title: Memoirs of an English officer.
The authorship of Memoirs of an English officer, first published in 1728, has been erroneously attributed to Captain George Carleton; these memoirs are a fiction, written by Defoe and intended by him to be accepted as the genuine reminiscences of a soldier.
