Osprey Men-at-Arms 1 : The American Provincial Corps 1775-1784

This book examines the uniforms, equipment, history and organisation of the men who served in the American Provincial Corps in the American Revolution. Initially British officials were reluctant to accept the offers of loyal subjects to form fighting units but eventually the potential of a Provincial corps was realized. Yet they never received the whole-hearted support of the British regular army and this was a factor in their eventual defeat. Nonetheless the Provincial Corps served with distinction, even fighting against the Spanish in Nicaragua and the Bahamas, and some remained in service for several more years by relocating to Canada. This book examines their experiences in this continental conflict and details their uniforms and equipment. Major actions and campaigns are also covered. Uniforms are shown in full colour artwork. Text by Philip Katcher with illustrations by Michael Youens.
