British Redcoat Versus French Fusilier : North America 1755-63 (Paperback) (Stuart Reid)
About this item
Providing a unique glimpse into the experiences of regular British and French infantry in North America during the French and Indian War, this book reveals what it was like for soldiers fighting each other at some of the most pivotal engagements of the conflict--Ticonderoga, La Belle-Famille, and Quebec.
Far from home, the equipment and tactics initially employed by both colonial powers were more suited to the European theater, but as the war ground on, tactical doctrine evolved as both armies learned lessons that would be utilized by succeeding generations of soldiers.
Packed with firsthand accounts, dramatic artwork and photographs, and a technical analysis of the evolving nature of warfare on the American continent, this book puts readers in the boots of the soldiers who played a pivotal role in shaping the future of North America.
