    They have 3 recent books that look interesting: Benedict Arnold's Army, Arthur Lefkowitz; Fusiliers (regimental history of Royal Welch Fusiliers), Mark Urban; and Patriot Battles (a training/tactics/weapons book), Michael Stephenson. Anyone know anything about them?

    Never heard of any of them. But I have heard of Arthur Lefkowitz. He also wrote a book about Washington's aides de camp called "George Washington's Indispensible Men", which was outstanding. I would hope that "Benedict Arnold's Army" would follow suit.

    The Lefkowitz book on the invasion of Canada is really good. It's definitely worth owning.

    Benedict Arnold's Army is a good book, I agree. I have not read Fusiliers.

    Stephenson's Patriot Battles is not so good. I have read only half of it,then had to stop. He laces it with so many biased modern comments, that it is annoying. Also, there is nothing startling new or indepth. Overall, I was unimpressed.

    I am enjoying Mark Urban's Fusiliers For me it's interesting to look at Rev. War battles from the British perspective.

    I like it. There are some 10 maps, 20 pictures/illustrations and a fair amout of primary sources.

    Got my copy in Linworth. There were about 5 more on the shelves last time I was there.
