1st ed., 2007. Xv + 384 pp., plates, some cold., + maps. D.j., 24 x 15cm. Foxing to fore-edge o/w FINE. From Lexington Green in 1775 to Yorktown in 1781, the Royal Welch Fusiliers marched thousands of miles and fought a dozen battles to uphold British rule in America. With a wealth of previously unused primary accounts, the author reveals the inner life of the regiment – and, through it, of the British Army as a whole – as it fought one of the pivotal campaigns of world history. The author describes how British troops adopted new tactics and promoted new leaders and shows how the foundations were laid for the redcoats’ subsequent performance against Napoleon.
