British Light Infantryman of the Seven Years' War by Ian McCulloch
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The light infantry in America during the Seven Years' War saw some of the sharpest woods fighting and cruellest skirmishing ever encountered by the British army up to this time. In order to meet this challenge the need arose for a new breed of tough, resilient and independent soldiers who could move quickly and lightly, and be self-sufficient in the wilderness. This book recreates the story of the evolving light infantry corps, examining their training, tactics and campaigning. Learning from their Indian enemies, they became experienced trackers, hunters and marksmen, adept with canoes, snowshoes and tumplines. Their development was a watershed in the history of irregular warfare.
