9781846030734: The Scottish Jacobite Army 1745?46 (Elite)

Osprey's examination of the Scottish Jacobite army during the Jacobite Rising of 1745. The heart of this book is the story of Bonnie Prince Charlie's army at Culloden. It strips away the myth and exposes the realities of life in the Jacobite rebel army. It begins with the raising of the army which included volunteers, 'pressed men' and mercenaries, as well as French forces that were sent over to assist as part of the 'Auld Alliance'. Unit organization, weapons, and tactics are discussed and the book also details the vicious battles that were fought in this doomed attempt to secure the British crown.

After the Jacobite rebellion was finally crushed at Culloden, many of the survivors were surprisingly drafted into the British Army alongside their former enemies and saw service in North America during the French-Indian War (1754-1763). The wonderful color plates and rare images illustrate the variety of uniforms that were worn ranging from tartan to regular army dress. This is an essential introductory guide to the Jacobite armies as well as a definitive reference to the uniforms and weaponry of the period.

Review:

“I found this to be a very interesting book and one of a subject I'd not considered before. I'm sure you will find it just as fascinating.” ?Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com

“[Stuart Reid uses] the work of historians and modern sources references to change the myths and reveal the underlying truths about the event... [One of several] outstanding coverages in-depth military holdings will welcome.” ?The Bookwatch
