Reviews

"No one has studied the British enlisted ranks in the Revolution with greater diligence and insight than Don N. Hagist. Now he has given us a remarkable group portrait of these men, illuminating who they were, why and how they fought, and what their lives were like."--Rick Atkinson, author of The British Are Coming: The War for America, Lexington to Princeton, 1775-1777, from the foreword to Noble Volunteers

"Anchored upon vivid vignettes of military life, many taken from previously unpublished documents, Noble Volunteers is a significant, ground-breaking study that reconstructs the entire arc of the humble redcoat's experience, from recruitment to demobilisation. Above all, it restores humanity to the thousands of rank-and-file soldiers who fought so tenaciously in an ultimately futile effort to keep the rebellious American colonies within the British Empire."--Stephen Brumwell, author of Turncoat: Benedict Arnold and the Crisis of American Liberty

"Don Hagist has written what will prove to be the definitive account of British soldiers who fought in the American Revolution. Compelling, interesting, and brilliantly conceived--using previously unpublished records, Hagist's impeccable research unearths the hidden war of the British enlisted men during the Revolution."--Patrick K. O'Donnell, author of Washington's Immortals
