Well I was hoping for an Osprey that covered British armies of the Seven Years War. This isn't it. Its a bit of an odd book really - covering a wide are without really touching on anything particularly useful. Well enough written and the illustrations are reasonable. I would say a below average offering in the series.

Costume research book 30 May 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent book of images on the uniforms of late 18th century. Details are thoroughly researched and clearly illustrated. A good addition to any costume library.

Bland but filling 20 April 2006
By Michael N. Ryan - Published on
Format: Paperback
Though a bit bland for an Osprey book the books of this series Stuart Reid has produced are insightful for those interested in the troops of this period.

My only complaint being that they do not cover the American colonial formations of this period or the various German troops Britain also employed

Excellent reference work 23 Jan. 2009
By Richard J. Windisch - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As with most Osprey books, the only thing this one lacks is more pages. It is well laid out and has very good illustrations. Not the do all be all of books on this subject, but a very good reference. I recommend it for modelers and researchers.

Good but Dry 13 Jan. 2001
By Ryan Haas - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book gives information on British calvery and artilllery units from about 1740 to 1790. It deals with troops in the seven years war, India, American revolotion, and Jacobite rebelions. The pictures and illustrations are good. The info is good and accurate. One problem is the writing is very dry. I've read many Osprey books but this is the dullest. I also wish the author had given information on Loyalists units in America.
