Osprey Warrior 68 : Continental Infantryman of the American Revolution

The United States raised three distinct forces to win its revolution - untrained, short-service militiamen; state troops; and the regular Continentals. The latter were the backbone of the army, providing a disciplined and effective fighting force. Some infantrymen served with Arnold's Lake Champlain fleet as marines, others fought conventionally in sieges and field battles, whilst others were involved in outpost raiding and skirmishing. This book takes a close look at the Continental infantryman, providing a detailed profile of a typical soldier, and examining recruitment, training, service conditions and combat experiences. Many armies have saved their nation - the Continentals helped build theirs. Text by John Milsop with illustrations by Steve Noon.
