Osprey Warrior 88 : British Light Infantryman of the Seven Years' War : North America 1757-1763

The British Light Infantryman of the Seven Years War was a 'chosen man', proficient at scouting and skirmishing, and more than a match for the French and their ruthless Indian allies. Shooting rapids in canoes and whaleboats, traversing swamps or jungles and snowshoeing through endless tracts of forest, British redcoats earned a reputation for resilience and resourcefulness as they adapted to the wilderness conditions of North America. Their development was a watershed in the history of irregular warfare, and this book provides a full examination of their fighting methods, covering training, tactics and campaigning from Canada to the Caribbean. Text by Ian McCulloch and Tim Todish with illustrations by Steve Noon.
