ARMY OF GEORGE II 1727-1760: The Soldiers who Forged an Empire

ARMY OF GEORGE II 1727-1760: The Soldiers who Forged an Empire
by Brown, Peter

1-225910

The Army of George II came during a period when Britain rose to prominence as a world power, defeating the French in India, North America, and the Caribbean and fighting them in two major wars in Europe. This was the army that crushed French colonial ambitions and in so doing laid the groundwork for the British Empire. Great leaders emerged, such as Robert Clive and James Wolfe, whilst the private soldiers proved themselves to be adaptable, stoic, and brave in the face of extreme hardship.

Details how the army was recruited, funded, and functioned day-to-day, plus uniforms worn by infantry, artillery, and cavalry how they were organised, paid, and punished. Offers insights into the logistics of 18th century warfare, how the soldiers performed in European and colonial battles and what medical treatment they could expect when the battles were over. Includes 49 b/w illustrations and 16 pages of color plates.
