Osprey Publishing - The Scottish Jacobite Army 1745–46

Osprey Publishing - The Scottish Jacobite Army 1745–46




This is one of my favorite Osprey books. It does a great job to explain the Jacobite army. The arguement put forth in this title shows that rather than just a rabble led by excentric leaders, the Jacobite army had a professional core leadership, which unfortunately was plauged by vanity of certain members.




As well, the army was not a horde of broadsword and target armed men, but rather many of them were armed with muskets. The tatical difference was that the Jacobite highlanders would fire off a volley and then expect their psycological effect of their charge would break their enemy.
