Illustrated by Joe Lee. The vital Lake George - Lake Champlain corridor, always a strategic link between New England and Canada, is the geographical setting of this study of the uniforms and clothing of British and Yankee soldiers and their Native American allies during the French and Indian War. Brief historical sketches of the British campaigns of 1755-1760 provide ample background information. A general description of the military clothing, gear and equipment issued during this period is followed by detailed descriptions of the items worn and used by the different groups: Yankee Provincials, Rangers and Light Infantry, Redcoats, Indian allies, and auxiliary troops. Sixteen informative appendices include: marching order and parade dress of the British army, descriptions of "small clothes," regimental lace, facing colors, examples of markings, clothing and gear issuance of 14 regiments and two Ranger units, and a description of British musicians' coats and gear.

An 18th century British style army uniform. This child Redcoat costume includes jacket with attached vest, cravat, chest belt, and boot tops. Shoes and sword not included. Hat and wig sold separately.
The British Army stumbled into the frontier conflict for North America unprepared and ill equipped for the territory. In a war marked by early failures in tactics and strategy, the British Army would have to adapt to their surroundings in many ways to achieve victory. Not the least of which was in uniforms and equipment. >From the simple act of lightening the baggage the average soldier carried, to changing the very weapons he fought with, this war would see much change to the Redcoat in North America. This book details these changes by examining the journals, accounts, and artwork of those who were actually there, as well as the official British Army records. A great deal of time and detail is spent discussing the nuts and bolts of the soldier's uniforms and equipment, and the system that supplied them. Field alterations and official modifications are also included. The vivid descriptions are given life in over a dozen illustrations and diagrams, making this an extremely comprehensive study of an army in transition. This study of Redcoat uniforms and gear reveals the dynamic and radical change of centuries-old British Army traditions, and serves as a comprehensive guide for re-enactors, painters, historians, and others seeking knowledge of the era.
Why this series of books, and is it for you?For serious researchers or dedicated hobbyists, there is a great deal of information about the Revolutionary War available at the retail level– a regimental history here, a package of letters by a celebrity there – but there are not many one-stop resources. This series is that resource, and this first volume is the gateway to the rest of the series.Outside those few hundred semi-professionals in this field, most readers who are simply curious about the American Revolution are Americans, and their interest is largely in the American forces. In Britain and France, the other major players in the war, much greater wars and greater triumphs or defeats emerged only 20 years later in the Napoleonic Wars, and since that time very few European historians have engaged in studying a distant war conducted by small forces so long ago. As with any one-sided conversation, it quickly becomes the case that our understanding of what really did happen and why it happened is severely limited by all the things we know that just aren’t so. Perhaps as a result of this first volume, museums and textbooks will come to life for the more casual reader, in which case the other volumes will provide the details that go along with a deeper interest.The full s...
