WELLINGTONíS RIFLES The Origins, Development and Battles of the Rifle Regiment in the Peninsular War and Waterloo from 1758-1815

WELLINGTONíS RIFLES
The Origins, Development and Battles of the Rifle Regiment in the Peninsular War and Waterloo from 1758-1815  

RRP: £19.99
OUR PRICE: £2.99  

Written by a former rifleman, this book offers an account of the new-fangled Rifle regiments using the new rifled muskets introduced in the late 18th century. Though resisted at first by military backwoodsmen, the Rifles became a vital component of Wellington's war winning Army in the Peninsular War and Waterloo campaign.
Until now there has not been a serious study of the rifle-armed regiments of the British Army that earned such renown in the Peninsular and Waterloo campaigns. Compiled by a former rifleman, Ray Cusick, who has written extensively on the subject, Wellington's Rifles examines the new rifle regiments, how they came about, their development and their actions. The author also investigates the introduction of rifled muskets into the British Army in the French and Indian wars of the eighteenth century, where they were shunned by the military establishment, to their transition into a key element in Wellington's extraordinarily successful Peninsular army. The training and tactics of the riflemen are explained and each significant engagement in which they were involved is explored in thrilling detail. It was the riflemen of the 95th Regiment that inspired the series of Sharpe books and films. That was the fiction; this is the reality.
