message 1: by Jerome (new)

Jerome Does anyone know any good books on the British side of the American Revolution, with their strategies, tactics, and conduct?
The only ones I know of are The British Army in North America 1775-1783 and "The War of Independence: The British Army in North America, 1775-1783" by Sir John William Fortescue. Are they any good?

I read a good book called "Fusiliers: The Saga of a British Redcoat Regiment in the American Revolution" by Mark Urban.

I read another book called The Brave Bostonians that I enjoyed and a lot of it was set in England. Non-fiction.

I just picked up a book called Iron Tears that I believe will throw some light on the British side of the Revolution.
