Author Talk: Don Hagist on “British Soldiers, American War: Voices of the American Revolution”
Join historian Don Hagist as he discusses his new book “Noble Volunteers: The British Soldiers Who Fought the American Revolution” which brings life to these soldiers, describing the training, experiences, and outcomes of British soldiers who fought during the Revolution. Drawing on thousands of military records and other primary sources in British, American, and Canadian archives, and the writings of dozens of officers and soldiers, Noble Volunteers shows how a peacetime army responded to the onset of war, how professional soldiers adapted quickly and effectively to become tactically dominant, and what became of the thousands of career soldiers once the war was over. A Q&A session will follow the presentation. Books can be pre-ordered in the online shop.
