Opis produktu:

This thorough and comprehensive volume on this fascinating era in British military history examines the whole nature of military science in the pre-Napoleonic age. Containing illustrations, plans, maps and diagrams, it is an excellent companion to Marlborough as Military Commander.

A military history which illuminates the complexities of 18th century war fare. The author draws upon a wide range of sources to explain how the regimental officer and soldier fought and manoeuvered, whether in the line of battle or in the siege trenches.

Covers not just Marlborough but from the 1689's to the 1740's. The detail is superb covering the various arm of the military, horse,foot, artillery and engineers in depth. Also covered is the equipment,uniforms and their cost! some of the tables are a little cluttered, would have been better in landscape as opposed to portrait but the diagrams are clear with some very nice period drawings. A slow read but it is what you should expect with a book containing this much detail. If you need to know how to create and use an army in this period, then read this book I think it pretty well covers it all. Everything except why the British firing by platoon is more deadly that the French firing by line?

Well written, easy to follow a must have for serious students of this period.
