Description
William Shakespeare was not exaggerating when he defined being a soldier as one of the seven ages of man. Over the early modern period, many millions of young men from the four corners of the present United Kingdom went to war, often (and most bloodily) against each other. The almost continuous fighting on land and sea for the 250 years between the battle of Bosworth Field and Culloden destroyed lives and decimated families and villages, but created the British state and forged the nation into the world's predominant power. Historian Charles Carlton explores the impact of war, paralleling a robust military and political narrative with accounts illuminating the soldier's experience from recruitment to the end of battle in discharge or death.
