Brian Tunstall's book in particular is well worth a read. There's been a copy in my book case for a few decades :)

There is another book with almost the same title. 21660

I have not read either book, so I do not know how they compare.

That's interesting Dave.
I am just on chapter two of Tunstall's book. It is a bit dry, but covers the evolution of battle tactics and signalling from the Commonwealth until the end of the Napoleonic wars. I am just at the end of the Dutch wars.
When I finish this one, I'll get the other and do a comparison.
