This book is not only a tribute to the proud Highlander regiments who have served with distinction for over two centuries but will also be an insightful study of the period in which they made their name. As the British Empire dominated every corner of the globe, Queen Victoria's Highlanders served in a variety of campaigns from the Indian subcontinent to Africa. This title will study their organization, histories, and evolution of uniforms. Each of the famous regiments - including the Black Watch, the Gordons, the Argylls, the Camerons - will be covered and the full glory of their romantic, tartan uniforms revealed.

Author Biography - Stuart Reid

Stuart Reid was born in Aberdeen in 1954 and is married with one son. He has worked as a librarian and a professional soldier and his main focus of interest lies in the 18th and 19th centuries. This interest stems from having ancestors who served in the British Army and the East India Company and who fought at Culloden, Bunker Hill and the Texas Revolution. His previous works for Osprey include the highly acclaimed titles about King George's Army 1740-93 (Men-at-Arms 285, 289 and 292) and the British Redcoat 1740-1815 (Warriors 19 and 20). The author lives in Whitley Bay, UK.
