Description

We know the thrilling, terrible stories of the battles of the Napoleonic wars – but what of those left behind? The people on a Norfolk farm, in a Yorkshire mill, a Welsh iron foundry, an Irish village, a London bank or a Scottish mountain? The aristocrats and paupers, old and young, butchers and bakers and candlestick makers – how did the war touch their lives? Jenny Uglow follows the gripping back-and-forth of the first global war, but turns the news upside down, seeing how it reached the people.
