Richard Dunn Pattison
Richard Phillipson Dunn Pattison (1874 – 8 March 1916) was a British soldier and academic historian specialising in military history.
Pattison was the son of Alexander Dunn Pattison, who was an Advocate of Old Kilpatrick, Dumbarton, and his wife Minnie Phillipson. He studied at New College, Oxford, and also served with the 91st Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. He was a Fellow of Magdalen College, Oxford, and became Professor of History at Oxford University. He became distinguished military historian and after publishing `War' in 1904, followed it up with Napoleon’s Marshals in 1909. This classic work, containing detailed biographical sketches of the 24 Marshals of France appointed by Napoleon, was republished in 2007. His history of the Black Prince is a popular and scholarly biography, as is his history of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.
