This work was published in London in 1761 and is considered by many experts to be one of the best written and explanatory treatises of the art of the petite guerre. It is considered a classic for the use of detached parties, and for this reason it is ideal for use by re-enactors as the information contained in it is written for detached parties of 6 or fewer men. It provides detailed descriptions for the speedy construction of breastworks and redoubts, for the taking of small villages, the blocking of river fords, night raids, etc. The work has one folding plate and is bound in an 18th century style quarter leather spine with blind tooled raised bands, hand marbled paper boards and an 18th century style paper label. It provides the perfect period look for the living history enthusiast.
Please be aware that leather colors and marbled paper patterns are based on what we have at hand, or in stock. Colors and patterns may vary from the image of the item.
