4.0 out of 5 stars

on 8 November 2012
A very enjoyable book that dwells on all aspects of the period. The military history is very well known, but the difficulties experienced by the authorities at home are perhaps less so. The rise of the industrial revolution brought about much civil unrest, as the old cottage industries failed to be able to compete, and many traditional jobs were lost. It also highlighted the cost of the military adventures which took so long to pay off; a lesson which we still do not seem to fully appreciate today. In my view a very well written book which gives a useful insight into the life style of the period. It makes one thankful that we live when we do.
