In Fusiliers Urban has chosen to tell the story of the 23rd Regiment the Royal Welch Fusiliers a unit that saw action throughout the American War of Independence from Lexington Green in 1775 to Yorktown in 1781 Despite being regular line troops rather than a special operations regiment like that depicted in Rifles the Royal Welch Fusiliers were central to most of the important battles of the war and as such the 23rd are an excellent choice of subject since their story can serve to illustrate the conflict as a whole Fusiliers is a very well balanced account of war and although the book concentrates on the actual battles and campaigns of the American War of Independence Urban does not shy away from recounting the numerous atrocities that were committed by both sides during the conflict Eually interesting is the way Urban demonstrates that far from being bogged down in tradition and incompetence the British army actually began adapting their military techniues from the minute their faults were revealed during the march from Concord to Bunker Hill so that the beginnings of a modern fighting force can be seen
