Summary and Info
The years 1689-1763 were years of transition in the military science. Many books have been written about the battles of that period, but few tell how the soldiers actually fought those battles using the weapons at hand. This book does. Painstakingly researched, and using actual battles for illustration, it tells the reader the "how" and "why" about the tactics used by infantry, cavalry and artillery.Well written, it provides a valuable resource to historians and history lovers of that long ago age.
