The red-coated soldiers of King George’s regiments of foot fought around the world during the American Revolution. This volume details each regiment, whether it fought in America, the West Indies, Africa, India, or the Mediterranean, or remained at home to defeat a Franco-Spanish invasion. Gleaned from numerous primary sources, including military returns and newspapers, and profusely illustrated, each regimental entry provides the details that made each unit unique, from the most senior regiments of Foot Guards through the Highlanders, Lowlanders, Irish, and English regiments. The nativity of the men and officers is detailed when available, along with a listing of field officers, campaigns, and casualty information. Contains hundreds of images including the contents of the Grenadier Book of 1771 and the Lace Book of 1768, published here for the first time in color.
