Richard Holmes is a military historian, the writer and presenter of "War Walks" and author of "Firing Line" and "Riding the Retreat". Drawing on a wealth of original source material - diaries, letters, memoirs - "Redcoat" is an anecdotal history of the British soldier from 1700 to 1900, a period in which methods of warfare and the social makeup of the British army changed little, and in which the Empire was forged. Similar in style to Katie Hickman's "Daughters of Britannia", or Simon Schama's "Citizens", this is a history of the common British soldier from 1700 to 1900 by one of Britain's military writers and broadcasters. "Redcoat" is filled with anecdote and humour as well as historical analysis.

Richard Holmes is famous for his TV War Walks series. He is the author of numerous books on the Second World War. He is married and lives in Hampshire.Review:
'I have never met Richard Holmes, but I am deeply jealous of him for Redcoat opens with the re-enactment of a Napoleonic battle that I wish I had written myself... The redcoat and his family were never appreciated, but Richard Holmes has written them a marvellous memorial. Redcoat is a wonderful book, full of anecdote and good sense. Anyone who has enjoyed a Sharpe story will love it, anyone who likes history will want to own it and anyone who cherishes good writing will read it with pleasure.' BERNARD CORNWELL, Daily Mail
