Treat with extreme caution. Superficial. Careless. Wrong 30 juin 2013
Par wasp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book is as pretty as a table-top arrayed with Britain's lead soldiers, and is about as accurate.

Anyone using this as a reference work risks being let down very badly.

Even more than the author's previous work, this book shows evidence of woefully bad editing as well as superficial research.

It may be valuable as a visual summary of the basic uniform distinctions of 1751 and 1768- button lace and facing colour. I am not qualified to say. The fact that there is no clear heading in the text for each regiment discussed is not helpful in that regard. A strange decision.

However, in relation certain specific areas: Highland troops, grenadiers and light infantry, particularly relating to the American War of Independence, I can say with confidence that the writing is in many places incoherent or contradictory and there are frequent statements so vague and generalised to the point of being meaningless. At one point the author details regulation headgear distinctions apparently relating to some time before 1770 that were in fact ordered 17 years after the end of the period he is discussing. As in his previous book on the Napoleonic Wars, in a number of places he repeats later regimental folklore as fact- and even makes mistakes there.

There are numerous other factual errors- far too numerous to list here- some of which go beyond careless research and would seem enter the realm of fiction. At one point, the author seems to have invented an extra regiment (relating to the various incarnations bearing the title '71st Highlanders')

Others are downright bizarre.

Suffice to say, any book that states the Black Watch were disbanded in Nova Scotia in 1783 should be treated with extreme caution.

Anyone using this as a reference work risks being let down very badly.

Previous review are a disservice 28 novembre 2013
Par R. Nelson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I purchased this book and found it money well spent. I think the negative evaluations say more about the reviewers than the book they are reviewing. We like to think of military history in absolutes -- it was this way. And yet frequently, the best we can do is provide a good representation of what may have been accurate on a given day. Have not found a book, any book, where I did not find a technical error. On the other hand, this book provides good information that is very useful. Do I really think it is a5-star production, maybe not. On the other hand the negatives reviews do not do it justice either. Like I said, have been very satisfied and am glad I purchased it.

A Word of Warning 8 octobre 2013
Par Al-Bo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book offers a vast collection of finely made and slick, modern computer graphics.

However, a big warning sign is warranted. This work might be usefull for wargamers, but it is very shady on many levels.

First of all, it makes it seem, as if all the regiments of the british army basically looked the same, which is very far from the actual historical reality. It is painfully obvious, that templates have been drawn in a computer programm, and subsequently merely filled in with the colour of the regiment.

For example a surviving, embroidered officers coat from the 44th regiment of foot is basically adopted as a standard, wildly assuming all officers in all regiments wore the same coat.

Also, there is no apreciable amount of reference to sources. Basically any factual claim and illustration just stands on it's own, and it is expected the reader may take the author's word for it. This is an utter no-go for any credible historical work. The reason behind this, however, is clear; Many things have been assumed, seemingly without even the most rudimentary backing in documentation. At times one may suspect dubious 19th or 20th C. illustrations might have served the author as inspiration.

Another fault in this work is the at times shoddy work. There are weapons displayed, that are mirror images of how he really should look like. Patterns for a few pieces of clothing are given, but at times the explanations remain unclear. Though the source for the patterns is given and one of the most respectable researchers on this particular field, the author of this book has managed to represent piece of the patterns in wrong orientations and assembly. On the pieces for a coats collar, for example, the front edges, and the back edges that form the central rear seam, are mixed up.

The icing on the cake, after all, is the confident display of the authors generously sized watermark on almost every single graphic and the air of definate authority, when there is none at all.

Slick looking, bearable for Wargamers, but utterly useless for anyone who intends to learn about the british army's attire.

The book I regretted buying the most.

Excellent reference on the British army in the 18th century, a valuable resource 30 mai 2014
Par The Baron - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Franklin provides an extensive, and possibly exhaustive, list of British army uniform details, providing a wealth of details for fans of the subject, whether modelers, painters or amateur historians. There are overviews of common details of equipment for cavalry and infantry, and then specific descriptions for the various regiments that were raised and disbanded through the years covered. The text descriptions are accompanied by colored plates to illustrate the items described.
I've been waiting to get my copy, since the book was issued, for the details Franklin has collected covering some of the lesser known units. I've had several figures on my bench, that I couldn't finish with any certainty about accuracy, till I got this book.
I recommend it highly!

A complete spread across British line regiments. Good commentary on why regiments raised / ended and when in the line.
