Thank you for the reassurance Pete, in truth I would have been very suprised if Stuart Reid had neglected coverage of his preferred periods.

Hi Painty,

Glad you like the artwork. I’m afraid the skewing on this part was entirely my fault – I chose that particular image as I really like it.

I just had a chat with the editor of the Weapon series and he assured me that the bulk of the book will be focused on the Flintlock Musket’s use by British and French troops in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Three very nice pictures, but I feel pretty cynical about the way the book about "Flintlock Musket" is being skewed to give so much coverage to its use during ACW. Hopefully the author will be allowed to squeeze in a few references to its use over 2 centuries by the French and British.
