Frederick MacKenzie, Diary of Frederick Mackenzie, 1st ed., 2 vols


A Fine Diary from a Officer in the Royal Welch Fusiliers



The Diary of Frederick Mackenzie… is one of the better British diaries of the Revolutionary period.  A competent soldier, and a keen observer of details brings both the battle aspects and MacKenzie’s personal experiences in the Revolutionary war  to life.

Very good, bright, clean, tight.  D.J. spines sunned, a few small chips; original red cloth; small stains on front flyleaves where bookplates were removed.
