Stephen’s latest superb uniforms book is simply magnificent, simply outstanding. This volume explores the uniforms, organisation and equipment of the Hanoverian Army during the reign of George II (1727-60) to the end of the Seven Years War in 1763 under George III (1760-1820). In addition it covers the Saxe-Gotha Infantry Regiment, the Schaumburg-Lippe contingent and the various Light Troops in Anglo-Hanoverian pay. The massive amount of illustration comes from contemporary sources as well as Brauer, Knotel & Schirmer. But the real joy are Stephen’s meticulously reconstructed flags and standards. This will become the essential work for years to come.
