Description

Volume III of the Cambridge History of the Napoleonic Wars moves away from the battlefield to explore broader questions of society and culture.

Leading scholars from around the globe show how the conflict left its mark on virtually every aspect of society.

They reflect on the experience of the soldiers who fought in them, examining such matters as military morale, ideas of honour and masculinity, the treatment of wounds and the fate of prisoners-of-war; and they explore social issues such as the role of civilians, women's experience, trans-border encounters and the roots of armed resistance.

They also demonstrate how the experience of war was inextricably linked to empire and the wider world.

Individual chapters discuss the depiction of the Wars in literature and the arts and their lasting impact on European culture.

The volume concludes by examining the memory of the Wars and their legacy for the nineteenth-century world.
