Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An army childhood is a peripatetic childhood. Taking the Napoleonic Wars as its starting point, Army Childhood sheds light on such crucial aspects of the army-child experience as the places that the children of British Army soldiers have called home, and on how they have been transported, housed, cared for, educated and entertained after the army assumed responsibility for their welfare.

This informative and evocatively illustrated book will appeal to those interested in British military history's social side, and to those seeking to understand what life was like for an erstwhile army-child ancestor. It is also essential reading for those who were once themselves 'barrack rats', 'pads' brats', or 'army brats', in whom it is guaranteed to arouse nostalgic memories.
