FROM THE DUSTJACKET...
This new book provides a novel approach to the history of the Highland regiments. Buttons, badges and battles only tell a part of a regiments history and the Highland regiments have always been set apart, and have always been considered special.
As this book reveals, the roots of that elitist attitude lie in the neglected field of military social history.
The authors extensive research has revealed a new side to the highland regiments, and this book examines in detail, the life of the Highland soldier between 1820 and 1920 and the pride and reputation that has made him so famous and respected through the years.
While changes in the origins of the Highland soldiers have taken place, national loyalty, their unique uniform and music, and the strong family nature of of their regiments have all contributed to the particular character of the Highland battalions.
This book examines the character of the Highland regiments through the medium of the officers and men, the results give new meaning to the Highland regimental history.
This is a serious study of the Highland regiments, with extensive lists, maps and the use of contemporary personal correspondence from the soldiers away from home.
