Book Description

13 Nov 1995 Men-at-arms (Book 289)
The 18th century was marked by a steady growth in central control of the British Army and a corresponding decrease in the influence enjoyed by individual commanding officers. The most obvious sign of this process was the increasing uniformity of the clothing issued each year to the soldiers. Nevertheless, as far as those who devised the Clothing Regulations were concerned, it was a constant, and invariably quite uphill struggle to enforce compliance. This companion volume to Men-at-Arms 285 takes a further look at the infantry uniforms of the mid-18th century British Army, also covering the various auxiliary infantry formations, such as the Militia, Volunteers, Marines and the troops of the East India Company.

5.0 out of 5 stars Costume research book 30 May 2014
By Virgil C. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bland but filling 20 April 2006
By Michael N. Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference work 23 Jan 2009
By Richard J. Windisch - Published on Amazon.com
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but Dry 13 Jan 2001
By Ryan Haas - Published on Amazon.com
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.
