This volume of the set covers the oddities of Wellington's armies. It covers the Light Infantry regiments, the Highlanders, and the King's German Legion. Not, however some of the really odd, like the Loyal Lusitanian Legion or the "Chasseurs Britainiques", but if you've got only forty pages and eight colour plates, you've got to draw the line somewhere. I note there were two books from Osprey on the KGL #42, but they are no longer in print. Pity. This book even has some illustrations relating to camp life and the fatigue outfits, and is therefore even more valuable to the figure painters. Not worth the money, but it's still available at all, which is a gain. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0850454190, Paperback)

In 1803 Sir John Moore's policy was to produce quick-thinking, intelligent, mobile soldiers capable of attacking on their own initiative. Old-style drill manuals, which still governed the training of the mass of British infantry, were set aside; and discipline was maintained, at least to some extent, by appeals to pride in self and unit rather than by the lash. In this companion volume to Men-at-Arms 114 Wellington's Infantry 1, Bryan Fosten provides an engaging account of the history and uniforms of the light infantry troops who served under Wellington, together with numerous illustrations including eight detailed full page colour plates by the author himself.
