Osprey Men-at-Arms 285 : King George's Army (1) 1740-1793 : Infantry

The 18th-century British soldier might easily have been excused for suspecting that he had very few friends. To most contemporary politicians the Army was no more than an unwelcome necessity in wartime and an unjustifiable extravagance in peacetime. Nevertheless, the overall impression which is to be gained from a close study of the Army's own records, and from the surviving letters, diaries and memoirs left behind by its officers [and occasionally by its men], is that by and large the British Army of the 18th century was very little different in character or in spirit from today's British Army. It was, above all, an army which was led, not driven, into battle. Stuart Reid looks at the organisation, officers and soldiers of King George's Army 1740-93 in a text supported by numerous illustrations including eight full page full colour plates by Paul Chappell. The companion book is Men-at-Arms 289 : King George's Army (2) 1740-1793.
