Included in A Redcoat and Greencoat at War are the exciting memoirs of Shadrach Byfield and Thaddeus Lewis. Byfield served in the light company of the 41st Regiment and would see active service with the British Right Division in its successes and failures in western Upper Canada and in Ohio and Michigan. He would see action in the Niagara theatre during the brutal winter campaign of late 1813 and early 1814. In the summer of 1814 Byfield would see hard service at Lundy's Lane and Black Rock where he was severally wounded. Through Byfield's memoirs we not only read of his experiences as a light infantrymen in battle, but also of his interaction with civilians, enemy soldiers and Natives. Lewis on the other hand would see a good part of his service in the eastern part of Upper Canada. Although he would see action at Ogdensburg, most of Lewis's time in service would be being sick or worn out from fatiguing journeys. Lewis's experience during the war would also be a spiritual one as he attempted to get right with God. This edition contains numerous footnotes, first hand accounts by Byfield and Lewis's contemporaries, maps and illustrations.
