"(A) celebration and investigation of the resourcefulness and cunning of the British soldier over the last three hundred years, in the face of hardship, brutality, boredom and battle. Here is the authentic story of life in the ranks, told with vigour, wit and scholarship. Drawing on a wide range of source material, the distinguished social historian Victor Neuburg provides a comprehensive and fascinating view of service life, from the viewpoint of those Wellington termed 'the scum of the earth'. The author traces the soldier's career through the years from recruitment to pension, with detailed accounts of barrack life, the relationship between camp followers and soldiers, and the strains and privations of active service." Tiny bump at top/bottom of rear hinge. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top of rear hinge/spine and at top of rear panel - minor wrinkling elsewhere, very light rubbing, several light line indentations on front panel.
