About this Product

In 1793 new British regiments were raised to face the threat of Revolutionary France. Among the first of the regiments to be raised were De Burgh's and the Scotch Brigade. These two regiments became united as the two regular battalions of the Connaught Rangers. As a result, the Connaught Rangers can claim a service record that streches back to 1572. This book explores the history, organisation, uniforms and equipment of the Connaught Rangers from the Napoleonic Wars to World War I. The unit's experience in America and in South Africa is included. The full variety of uniforms are illustrated in a variety of colour plates and several contemporary photos and illustrations.
