Advice to the Officers of the British Army: With the addition of Some Hints to the Drummer and Private Soldier London, 1783
A mocking look backwards on the conduct of the war against the American Colonies. Every instance of corruption, disregard and vice are suggested for every rank of the army. Tongue in cheek, but obviously rooted in truth. It also contains a satirical portrait of Jeremiah Hodges, Grose’s erstwhile commanding officer in the Surrey militia. The current work has been enlarged by 30%, contains the original text of the 1786 edition, and is printed on laid paper. Each book is sewn and is bound in a hand marbled cover. All the original ads have been retained.
