THE PATTERN: The 33rd Regiment in the American Revolution 1770-1783

THE PATTERN: The 33rd Regiment in the American Revolution 1770-1783
by MacNiven, Robbie

1-236980

Regimental history of the 33rd Foot during the Revolutionary War. In the early 1770s, the 33rd Foot acquired a reputation as the best-trained regiment in the British Army. This reputation would be tested beyond breaking point over the course of the American Revolutionary War. From Saratoga to South Carolina, the 33rd was one of the most heavily-engaged units - on either side - throughout the war. Includes 4 b/w illustrations, 22 b/w photos, 2 color illustrations, 18 color photos, 8pp color plates, 15 maps, 2 tables, and 4 graphs.

The 33rd's rise to prominence stemmed from its colonel, Charles, Earl Cornwallis, who took over in 1766. In a period where senior officers wielded huge influence over their own regiments, Cornwallis proved to be the best kind of commander. Diligent and meticulous, he focussed on improving the 33rd in every regard, from drills and field exercises to the quality of the unit's weapons and clothing.

The 33rd subsequently became known as the 'pattern' for the army, the unit on which other successful regiments were based. Prior to the outbreak of fighting in the American colonies in 1775, the 33rd's abilities, particularly in new light infantry drills, were frequently praised. At one point they even assisted in training the elite regiments of the Foot Guards.
