About this Item

BRAND NEW Softcover - Vol 1 - Extra shipping for Overseas Due to Size! - chronicles the Highland Regimentsí fighting performance and experiences from the time they were raised in the Highlands and stepped ashore in North America, to their disbandment in 1763; or, as in the case of the 42nd, reduced in establishment and left on lonely garrison duty in the American wilderness until their recall and return to Ireland in 1767. The exploits of the 42nd, 77th and 78th Highlanders in some of the most bloody and desperate battles on the North American continent were a critical factor in transforming the overall image of Highlanders from Jacobite rebels to Imperial heroes in the latter half of the 18th century. But the everyday story of these regiments - how they trained, worked, played, fought and died from their own point of view - has never been seriously told. A Brand New Quality Book from a Full-Time Bookshop in business since 1992!. Bookseller Inventory # 538840
