Suffren sailed for America on his 64-gun Fantasque with a fleet led by VAdm. d'Estaing. He showed much daring at Newport when, leading several frigates, he boldly entered the harbor forcing the British ships there to be scuttled. The French fleet then sailed to the West Indies and Suffren took part in engagements at St Lucia, Grenada and the abortive siege of Savannah. Suffren was, by Pierre-Andre Bailli de Suffren, c. 1785.

These brilliant actions made him famous overnight in Britain. He had already been elected to Parliament in 1761 and sat from 1763 in the House, where he denounced financial scandals in India. He also tried his hand as a playwright enjoying much success (in 1775) with his play, the "Maid of Oaks". In 1772 he was promoted to major-general and, in 1775, was sent as an observer to Boston, then besieged by the Americans: here he was much perturbed by the rigid linear tactics used by the British against their well-covered enemy.
Following the war, Lt. Col. Tarleton was put on half-pay: it seems his unsavory reputation for being cold-hearted and ruthless followed him home as he wrote his account of the southern campaign to answer his critics. He was promoted to colonel in 1790, major-general in 1794 and was sent on active service to Portugal in 1798. A major-general in 1801, he commanded the Severn District in Ireland for seven years. Made a full general in 1812, the elderly Tarleton was by then also Governor of Berwick and Colonel of the 21st Light Dragoons.
