Britain and Wellington's Army: Recruitment, Society and Tradition, 1807-15 (War, Culture and Society, 1750-1850)
by Kevin Linch
Britain was France's most implacable enemy during the Napoleonic Wars yet was able to resist the need for conscription to fill the ranks of its army and sustain Wellington's campaigns in Portugal and Spain. This new study explains how the men were found to replenish Wellington's army, and the consequences on Britain's government, army and society.
