Osprey Men-at-Arms 450: American Loyalist Troops 1775–84
Packed with specially commissioned artwork, maps, contemporary photographs and diagrams, the Men-at-Arms series is an illustrated reference on the history, organisation, uniforms and equipment of the world's military forces, past and present.

About this book

To celebrate the 450th title in the Men-at-Arms series, this book examines in much more depth than previously the units and the uniforms of a still-controversial army: the many thousands of American colonists who chose to fight for King George during the Revolution. As well as the better-known corps from the Atlantic seaboard, the author covers the units raised for service against the Spanish in the Floridas, the Caribbean islands and Central America. The text is illustrated with portraits, photographs of rare surviving artefacts, and with color reconstructions by Gerry Embleton, the respected expert on 18th century American forces whose work was recently exhibited in the Smithsonian Institute.
