Osprey Men-at-Arms 12 : The Connaught Rangers

In 1793 new British regiments were raised to face the threat of Revolutionary France. Among the first of the regiments to be raised were De Burgh's and the Scotch Brigade. These two regiments became united as the two regular battalions of the Connaught Rangers. As a result, the Connaught Rangers can claim a service record that stretches back to 1572. This book explores the history, organisation, uniforms and equipment of the Connaught Rangers, from the Napoleonic Wars to World War I. The unit's experience in America and South Africa is included. Uniforms are shown in full colour artwork. Text by Alan Shepperd with illustrations by Michael Youens.
