Abstract

From the start of the Thirty Years' War in 1618 through the close of the 19th century, Europe was plagued with military conflicts. While soldiers were the most obvious participants and casualties of these wars, civilians were also affected. This book explores the impact of warfare on the daily life of European civilians from 1618 through 1900. The volume begins with a look at the effects of the Thirty Years' War, one of the most devastating and brutal in European history. It then examines the conflicts which took place between 1648 and the French Revolution of 1789. From there the book looks at daily life during the wars of the French Revolution. It then considers daily life during the Napoleonic wars, while a final chapter discusses the period from 1815 to 1900. Each chapter is written by an expert contributor and suggests works for further reading.
