Wellington's Infantry : v. 1 Paperback
by Bryan Fosten
Part of the Men-at-Arms series
The infantry was Wellington's favoured tool, and he played a major role in raising its standards of excellence.
He used it carefully, on ground which he selected to give it maximum advantage and protection; and he came to understand its capabilities and weaknesses exactly.
In this worthy addition to Opsrey's Men-at-Arms series, Bryan Fosten examines all aspects of Wellington's infantry, including army life, organisation, uniforms, drill, regimental distinctions, weapons and equipment, in an engaging text well-illustrated throughout including eight full page colour plates by the author himself.

Review by DinadansFriend
A tidy book within its parameters. The pictures are good, with a fascination for the various shakos that's a little odd, but I suppose they survived better than other items of kit. While I know it's little more than a pamphlet, yet it does have small amounts of narrative, and a guide to the details of regimental dress.
