British Army Uniforms of the American Revolution 1751 - 1783 (Paperback)
Based on contemporary records and paintings, this book identifies each cavalry and infantry regiment and illustrates changes in uniforms, their facing colours and the nature and shape of lace worn by officers, NCOs and private soldiers from 1751 to 1783. Regiments that served in the American War of Independence are noted and the book includes more than 200 full-colour plates of uniforms and distinctions. Divided into four sections, it not only details the cavalry and infantry uniforms of the period but also the tartans of the Highland regiments, some of which were short-lived, and the distinction of the Guards’ regiments.
This book will be of great use to anyone interested in the 18th Century British Army as well as the illustrators and other who need detailed information in one convenient source. The long title of the book is "A fully illustrated account of the uniforms and distinctions of each numbered regiments of cavalry and Infantry in the British Army with a full and complete list of regimental facings lace and distinctions including the tartan of the highland regiments".
