Part two is going to be very useful to anyone (like me?)who fancies including some of these units in their Allied army for fighting the French in Flanders. Troops were recruited from Hanover, Hesse Cassel, Baden, Hesse Darmstadt and Brunswick, and the composition of the various contingents is covered in detail, including for each unit its organisation, uniforms and where appropriate its flags. I've always been aware that, rather obviously, Hanover provided troops to the British, given that George III was the Elector of Hanover, but it is interesting to read about the terms upon which this arrangement was made. The same applies to the other armies, and the Subsidy Treaties between Britain and Hesse Cassel and Brunswick are included.
The book contains many lovely contemporary colour uniform plates as well as black and white illustrations and a number of useful maps and diagrams. It has been extensively and exhaustively researched from both English and German language sources including previously unpublished materiel and contains a helpful bibliography for any more serious scholars out there.
In short, an excellent book and well worth the money, especially for those of us who wargame the War of the First Coalition. For me this is the best (by which I mean most useful from a collecting and gaming point of view) book so far in Helion's From Reason to Revolution 1721-1815 series.
