"The prose is clear and readable, the analysis is enlivened with well-chosen examples, and Page offers much helpful contextual material. ... the book will be valuable to researchers and teachers who will find here a scholarly, up-to-date introduction to the "war and society" theme in eighteenth-century British history."
