Light Troops in the Seven Years War: Irregular Warfare in Europe and North America, 1755-1763
James R. McIntyre

Helion- From Reason to Revolution 1721-1815 series

"Histories of the Seven Years War or French and Indian War tend to concentrate on the more significant battles, but this approach overlooks the constant war of raids, ambushes and scouting that pervaded in both the North American and European theatres what contemporaries referred to as the petite guerre or kleine krieg.
Light Troops in the Seven Years War fills this gap by examining the conduct of these smaller but, at times, operationally and even strategically significant engagements. It draws parallels between the theatres as well. The work surveys the development of irregular troops, sometimes referred to as light infantry, on both continents during the eighteenth century and provides examples of these troops in action in the Seven Years War."

Is there a table of contents? Compared to the F&IW There is next to nothing about SYW small wars I can find. Hoping this is most of the book.
