… the 30th Regiment During the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars.

"In this companion volume to her pioneering study Redcoats Against Napoleon, Carole Divall tells the fascinating inside story of a typical infantry regiment during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars. Rather than focusing on the history of the 30th Regiment of the Line in action and on campaign, she explores its organization, traditions and hierarchy, its personnel, and the ethos that held it together. Using primary source material, in particular surviving regimental records, War Office documents, letters and journals, Divall reconstructs the life of the 30th Foot and the lives of the men who served in it during a critical period in Europe's military history."

Yes, fascinating. It forms the basis of the WD Diplay Team North participation game "All True Soldier Gentlemen, the game of officers' careers in the British Army during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars 1793 1815" which will be at Partizan in a couple of weeks.

My copy came from Worley Books and was a lot cheaper than the Amazon price.

It's a companion to 'Redcoats against Napoleon'. Her 'Napoleonic Lives' Researching the British Soldiers of the Napoleonic Wars is good too. And I can concur with Green Tiger, having heard her speak and had a wonderful conversation with her afterwards.
