To Napoleon�s troops, the sharpshooters of the 95th (Rifle) Regiment were the rascals in green," famed throughout Europe for their bravery, skill, and dash. Kincaid' Adventures in the Rifle Brigade was the first book to be published by a veteran, recounting the amazing escapades of this legendary unit in the war against French armies in Portugal and Spain. His second volume, Random Shots from a Rifleman, is just as vivid and memorable as the first and finishes with a remarkable first-hand description of the Waterloo campaign from the ordinary soldier�s point of view. The two volumes, here bound together in abridged form, add up to one of the most enthralling eyewitness records of regimental soldiering every written. Although other Rifles memoirs quickly followed, none achieved the commercial or critical success of Kincaid's collection of unforgettable anecdotes. 320 page softcover book with illustrations throughout.
