Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (B) Bennet,
A Scottish sergeant who rose to become a
major-general in 1717, he personally saved the live of King Charles XII of
Sweden when the impetuous king ventured too far forward and was surrounded
by the enemy. Bennet appeared with a small band and cut a way of retreat
through overwhelming forces. Later he became governor of Malmö, Sweden
and a baron.
