The story of the 18th Century soldiers of the British Army
I bought this book to accompany the similar "Redcoat Officer", also by Osprey. This book describes the rank and file of the 18th Century British army, covering their recruitment, training and tactics, as well as depicting their appearance in detail through colour plates and black & white pictures, showing period paintings and modern re-enactors. For anybody looking to gain an understanding of the life and appearance of the army of the time this is an excellent and very accessible book.
