PRINCIPLES OF MILITARY MOVEMENTS (1788) CHIEFLY APPLIED TO INFANTRY

Details

One of the most influential British drill books of the 18th Century whose core with small alterations was to become in 1792 the regulation manual for the army.The author who was later to become Adjutant General toured the continent often and attended the Prussian manoeuvres of 1785.He was one of many officers who believed that the British experience in North America had led to an over reliance on light infantry and a belief that speed of manoeuvre was of more importance than heaviness of fire power.His book was a much needed restatement of the necessity and value of properly trained heavy infantry.
