Abstract

This book fundamentally revises our notion of why soldiers of the eighteenth century enlisted, served and fought. Utilising research on military psychology and combat theory, and employing the letters, diaries and memoirs of around 250 private soldiers and non- commissioned officers from over a dozen different European armies, Motivation in War transforms our understanding of the life of the common soldier in early modern Europe.
