9780571224883: Fusiliers: How the British Army Lost America but Learned to Fight

From Lexington Green in 1775 to Yorktown in 1781, one regiment marched thousands of miles and fought a dozen battles to uphold British rule in America: the Royal Welch Fusiliers. With a wealth of previously unused primary accounts, Mark Urban reveals the inner life of the regiment - and, through it, of the British army as a whole - as it fought one of the pivotal campaigns of world history. With customary narrative flair, Urban shows how the foundations were laid for the redcoats' subsequent performance against Napoleon, as they became one of the crack regiments of the army.
