The British army of the mid-eighteenth fought two major European wars between 1740 and 1763 as well as dealing with the Jacobite Rebellion at home. The battle honours of the period include such names as Dettingen, Minden and Warburg. The cavalry played a major role in all these campaigns and this book sets out to describe how they were uniformed, equipped and mounted and how they operated.
