Osprey Disappointment

Soldiers of the Revolutionary War

Soldiers of the Revolutionary War

Ok, so my first real Osprey disappointment was Soldiers of the Revolutionary War. I loved what they had to tell me about the SYW, but I found this book to be pretty rubbish. I suppose the plates are OK, but the text tells very little useful information as far as uniforms go. It would be a great reference if you wanted to know about the quantities of cloth bought by different colonies. It contains almost nothing useful on organization and tactics like so many other Osprey books do. I refer to this book as a last reference, and would recommend spending your money on a different book.

    Yeah, this book isn’t that useful from a gaming perspective. I eventually sold mine and use web sources now.
