THE SOLDIERS ARE DRESSED IN RED: The Quiberon Expedition of 1795 and the Counter-Revolution in Brittany
Provides a comprehensive account of the 1795 joint expedition of French emigres in specially raised military unit and British Navy and Army who came ashore in Quiberon Bay, south-eastern Brittany. Their mission was to support the chouans who were revolting against the Republican French government. Drawing on memoirs, archival material and historical works it seeks to place the expedition within the context of wider events and describe how it was affected by the planning process as well as concurrent events and priorities. Personal and political capacity, ambition, rivalry and co-operation all played their part in affecting events, along with the weather and chance.1 vol, 290 pgs 2022 UK, HELION AND COMPANY
