Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Walter Leslie (Fetternear House, Aberdeenshire, 1607 – Vienna, 4 March 1667) was an Imperial Field Marshal of Scottish descent. Walter Leslie was born to a prominent Scottish noble family from the Clan Leslie. His father William was the 10th Baron of Balquhain and his mother Joan was a daughter of John Baron of Gogar. In 1647, he married Anna Francesca von Dietrichstein, daughter of Count Maximilian von Dietrichstein. They had no children. Walter Leslie entered in 1631 in the service of Albrecht von Wallenstein and fought together with his countryman John Gordon in the Battle of Lützen. Leslie was responsible for the supply of ammunition to Wallenstein's army and had thus good contacts with the court in Vienna. There he was ordered to keep an eye on Wallenstein, whose loyalty was mistrusted in Vienna. When Wallenstein had to flee in 1634 to Cheb, Leslie witnessed Wallenstein's plans to link up with the enemy.
