About this book

This collection examines soldiers as combatants, tourists, family men and as citizens. In particular, chapters trace the theme of the 'citizen soldier' through the initiatives of the period that placed civilian men under arms. In these ways and more, this new book explores 'soldiering' as an activity, an identity, a career and a way of life.
