SUASSO, ANTONIO [I.E. ANTONIO LOPEZ SUASSO DIAZ DE FONSECA]. - The Theory of Infantry Movements.

 1467647172,
London, W. Sams 1825. Three volumes octavo, uncut in original boards (backstrips gone but solid and neat enough). Scattered foxing or browning but in all quite good. ¶ First edition; a new edition appeared some twenty years later. Despite the continental glamour of his name Suasso was an officer in the British army at this time - he retired as a captain in 1829 - though he was no Englishman; he was born in Amsterdam of Spanish or Portugese Jewish lineage. If you are one of the thousands, maybe millions, wondering why the British infantry deployed in two lines rather than three I'm told Suasso is the man to see.
