The author examines the level of military participation - which was much greater than is usually appreciated - and explores the wars effects on subjects as varied as parliamentary reform, religious toleration and attitudes to empire.

The books casts new light upon recent debate about the war-waging efficiency of the British state, and on the role of war in the creation of a sense of Britishness. The thematic chapters are supplemented by local case studies of six very different communities the length and breadth of the British Isles.
