I'm presuming that those with an interest in the subject will already be aware of the two volumes by Mark Geerdink-Schaftenaar in Helion's, "From Reason to Revolution" series, ie "For Orange and the States: The Army of the Dutch Republic, 1713-1772", (Part I: Infantry, Part II: Cavalry and Specialist Troops), but just in case anyone has missed them I thought I'd bring them up.
They fill in for the general lack of uniform, organisational and other information on the Dutch of this period.
I haven't got around to reading the books yet, but a perusal of the chapter titles will give you an idea:
PART I: INFANTRY.
1. The Dutch Republic, 1713-1740.
2. Entering the War of the Austrian Succession, 1740-1744.
3. The Republic at War, 1745-1746.
4. Infantry Structure and Organisation.
5. The Infantry Regiments During the 18th Century.
6. Guard Regiments, Guard Companies, Life Guard Regiments and 'Oranje' Regiments.
7. National Regiments.
8. Swiss Regiments.
10. Walloon and German Regiments.
Colour Plate Commentaries
PART II: CAVALRY AND SPECIALIST TROOPS.
1. For Orange and the States.
3. A Second Rate Power.
4. The Artillery, Specialist Troops, and Staff.
5. The Cavalry and Dragoon Regiments During the 18th Century.
6. Guard and Life Guard Cavalry.
7. Line Cavalry Regiments.
9. Light Cavalry, Carabineers, Hussars and Free Corps.
I. Raadpensionarrisen and Stadtholders of the Dutch Republic in the 18th Century.
II. Glossary of Dutch Military Terms.
III. Glossary of Dutch names for French and English Toponyms.
Colour Plate Commentaries.
Hope the books might be of use to some of you.
