Product Description

The British soldier was feared and respected throughout the world in the period 1750-1850, a time when his victories helped to expand the British Empire to its greatest extent. Strangely, though, his reputation at home was rather more contradictory: the army could be politically distrusted, soldiers often occupied a marginal position in society, and even the manliness of the profession could be called into question. Men of Arms explores the intriguing figure of the British soldier, and seeks to explore "soldiering" as an activity, an identity, a career and a way of life. Chapters explore the role of social class, political radicalism and national identities, and think about soldiers as combatants, as tourists, as family men and as citizens. In so doing, the book offers fresh approaches to the study of warfare in this fascinating period of history.. Price: $76.49
