Overview

Nine leading historians of the new military history offer a fresh look at a critical period in the history of the Atlantic world. They examine the three major North American conflicts that disrupted the British Empire between 1754 and 1815: the Seven Years’ War, the American Revolution, and the War of 1812. By framing their analysis within a British perspective, several of these essays restore the British dimension to our understanding of these wars. Taken together, these wars helped to define the identity of each nation while transforming the entire English-speaking world.

The new military history shifts the reader’s attention from troop movements and armaments to the social and cultural nature and impact of warfare. The authors explore questions of gender in the British Army, the experience of the common soldier, identities in the English Atlantic world, and the press and popular perceptions of war. These nuanced readings of warfare open a window onto the military experience of the British and North American people.
