|Main Creator:||Drenth, Wienand, author.|
"These two volumes provide a survey of colonial expansion from the Protectorate to the Hanoverian Succession but also survey the military effort of Britain in the colonies. They bring together, for the first time, large amounts of detailed information on the military forces and garrisons of the overseas territories. Much of this information has been gathered from original source material in various archives in Britain, the Netherlands, Minorca and St. Helena. They provide detailed lists of the officers of the regular and militia forces in the colonies and overseas territories, including biographical details; they also give details of the regiments that took part in the expeditionary campaigns that seized the territories, including the foreign regiments that assisted in the capture of territories in the Mediterranean" -- Publisher's description.
