Book-British Rifleman 1797-1815

British Rifleman 1797-1815 by Philip Haythornthwaite

"The rifle corps of the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars are among the most recognisable of all the soldiers of that era: their distinctive dark green uniforms are as familiar as some of their exploits. They have achieved considerable fame through the large number of memoirs written by members of the rifle corps as well as through modern fiction, most notably the Sharpe series. Apart from their reputation as a corps d'elite, the riflemen were, in their time, at the very cutting edge of military technology and tactical theory. Philip Haythornthwaite here uses fascinating first hand accounts and detailed research to give a 'soldier's-eye-view' of the British Rifleman, his life and work."
