The United States Army 1783-1811 Paperback / softback
Illustrated by David Rickman
Part of the Men-at-Arms series
The immediate 'prequel' to Men-at-Arms 'United States Army 1812-14', covering the crucial period between the end of the Revolutionary war and the resumption of war with Britain in 1812.
It was in this period that the decision was taken (just) that the USA should even have an army.
It was a colourful transitional force, 'Mad Anthony' Wayne's Legion fought some significant battles against the Indians; a regular army was founded, and grew from scattered wilderness garrisons to a conventional force able to face the British regulars and Canadian volunteers in 1812-14.
