Synopsis:

This translation of Johann Ewald's classic essay, Abhandlung Uber den kleinen Krieg, published in 1785, describes light infantry tactics in an era of heavy infantry formations. Robert Selig and David Skaggs comment on Ewald's treatise on partisan warfare and its relevance to current military doctrine. They also provide extensive scholarly notations with the text, explaining people, places, and events during the Seven Years' War and the American Revolution, where Ewald had extensive experience as a company commander in the Hessian Field Jaeger Corps. This first English translation should be of real interest to historians of American Revolution and pre-Napoleonic warfare and of special use to military professionals today in the Army and Marine Corps.

Captain Ewald, eventually a Major General in the Danish Army, describes the recruiting and training of light infantry troops, and discusses their use both in the Seven Years' War and the American Revolution at length. He provides illuminating insights into light infantry tactics and doctrine.

Book Description Greenwood Press, Westport, Conn., 1991. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Reprint of 1785 edition.. Drawing on 24-years of military experience, Ewald wrote this influential manual for "the leader of a light corps or a detachment which is composed of cavalry and infantry." Unlike similar such works of the period, Ewald largely uses examples from his experiences as a Hessian jager officer serving with the British Army during the American Revolution. He discusses recruitment, drill, marches, contact with the enemy, selection of outposts, the conduct of officers, the occupation and defense of fortified towns, reconnaissance and patrols, raids, ambushes, and retreats. Of timely significance, Ewald discusses the problems of combating an elusive enemy that can melt into the local population. The book is accompanied by a superb introductory essay and notes by the editors tracing the historical concept of partisan warfare (Kleiner Krieg) and light infantry tactics, and its modern application. Dark green cloth with black labels and bright gilt title. Moderate wear to base of spine. Rear board lightly rubbed. Contents clean and bright with black and white maps. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall, 178 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 001313
