Product Description

About the Author

Stuart Reid was born in Aberdeen in 1954 and is married with one son. He has worked as a librarian and a professional soldier and his main focus of interest lies in the 18th and 19th centuries. This interest stems from having ancestors who served in the British Army and the East India Company and who fought at Culloden, Bunker Hill and the Texas Revolution. His previous works for Osprey include the highly acclaimed titles about King George's Army 1740-93 (Men-at-Arms 285, 289 and 292) and the British Redcoat 1740-1815 (Warriors 19 and 20). The author lives in Whitley Bay, UK.

Scottish Highlanders 1830-1910 15 Jan. 2008
By K. Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This beautifully illustrated title serves as an introduction to the history and uniforms of the Scottish Highland regiments in British service from c. 1830 to c. 1910. As a previous review stated, this was something of a golden age in the history of the Highland Regiments, many of which distinguished themselves for courage, eagerness to battle, will to survive, and loyalty to their country and generals. It was only on March 28th of 2006 that 'Highlanders' was removed from the regimental names.

The first half of the book is a summary of their history as well as the recruiting system and the origins of the troops. The second half examines, in detail (though not to a technical, or, for the casually interested reader, dull, level) the colors and styles of the bonnets, jackets, kilts, plaids, trews, hose, spats, and sporrans of the 19th Century Regiments.

The color plates are perhaps the most impressive I have ever seen from Gerry Embleton, and depict leaders, pipers, and common soldiers from many of the most famous regiments in a number of poses. The wide and fearsome arsenal of these men, combined with their colorful, sometimes wild costumes made them the most impressive soldiers in the British Army of their day. This book is a fitting tribute to these valorous and flamboyant men and their illustrious legacy.

Another Example of one of Ospreys Better Efforts! 31 Dec. 2007
By David D. Lawson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When this company puts its mind to it and plays to its strengths. (The History of the British Army)It can produce a 1st rate book as this shown here. Both the Text and the Illustrations are excellent on a very interesting and complex subject. The Highlanders are given their proper due by this slim tome. Well Done by all hands involved!
PS Its a Pity that White Hall has now done away with the Highland & Low land Regiments and basically all we have now is a Scottish Division.

"Golden Age" of the Scottish Regiments? 11 Jan. 2008
By Joseph W. Vattilana Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Osprey continues their fine series of military history with this book on the Scottish regiments in the 19th Century. This is what a number of people would consider the "Golden Age" of the Scottish regiments, who were held in high regard world wide. The book covers some interesting topics, such as the attempt to amalgamate some regiments, and standardize uniforms (tartans, etc.), which, at times, were flatly refused to accept. The book has the usual color plates of various regiments, of particular note for this reviewer, the pipers. Very interesting book covering a most significant time period for the Scottish regiments.
