America raised three distinct forces to win its revolution: untrained, short-service militiamen; state troops; and the regular Continentals. The latter was the backbone of the army, providing a disciplined and effective fighting force. This title takes a close look at the Continental infantryman, providing a detailed profile of those who manned the ranks, and examines recruitment, training, service conditions and combat experiences of these key soldiers. Many armies have saved their nation: the Continentals helped create theirs.
