"Social, military, and political history intersect in this meticulously researched study of French war veterans from the end of the Old Regime to the 1820s. Tracing the composition of this group, the changing public policy that determined its fate, and the institutions that served it (notably the Hotel des Invalides), Woloch shows how the vererans' situation was a veritable barometer of the revolutionary experience. His principle aim is precisely to reconsider that experience from a fresh and full-scale perspective..."
