A NEW SYSTEM OF MILITARY DISCIPLINE FOR A BATTALION OF FOOT IN ACTION (1745) CAMPAIGNS OF KING WILLIAM AND QUEEN ANNE 1689-1712

Details

Published in the year of the 1745 Jacobite rebellion this is a fascinatingly informative early military manual which combines a history of Britain’s wars with France in the reigns of King William III and Queen Anne with a description of ‘A new system’ of military discipline and exercises of horse and foot in the age of Marlborough. The author Brigadier-General Richard Kane was a professional soldier and sometime Governor of Minorca. Kane begins by describing William of Orange’s campaigns in Ireland and Flanders following his ‘Glorious Revolution’ of 1689. He moves on to describe the Duke of Marlborough’s victorious campaigns against France in the War of the Spanish Succession after 1700 including the battles of Blenheim Ramillies Oudenarde and Malplaquet. The book concludes with a illustrated section on the latest infantry and cavalry tactics and manoevres. A must for re-enactors war-gamers and any student of 18th century warfare.
