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.



message 4: by Ian (new)

Ian Saberton May I recommend "The Cornwallis Papers: The Campaigns of 1780 and 1781 in the Southern Theatre of the Revolutionary War" edited by Ian Saberton (myself). Besides containing comprehensive transcripts of almost all Cornwallis's headquarters papers relating to those campaigns and his capitulation at Yorktown, it includes introductory chapters casting additional light on the conflict.


message 5: by Greg (last edited Apr 29, 2016 08:44AM) (new)

Greg Schroeder Redcoats and Rebels by Christopher Hibbert is an excellent view of the Revolution from the Royalist/British point of view.

Tracey Anne of Green Gables ...?
