Osprey Publishing - British Light Infantryman of the Seven Years' War

Osprey Publishing - British Light Infantryman of the Seven Years' War




This book is a good study of how Lord Howe's inspiration of beating the French at their own game, helped enable the British victory over the French in North America.

Howe, understood that to beat the French, the Anglo-Americans needed to use the same tactics, but the British also understood that they needed the discipline of a regular soldier to get the job done.

It would take the American Revolution to convince the British Army to keep light infantry companies.
