Stuart Reid was born in Aberdeen in 1954. Married, with one son, he has previously worked as a librarian and has served as a professional soldier.

He is an established author, who has written several titles for Osprey, including the highly acclaimed sequence of books on King George's army 1740-93 (Men-at-Arms volumes 285, 289 and 292) and the British Redcoat 1740-1815 (Warrior volumes 9 and 42). He has also worked as a historical consultant to film and television companies.
