Abstract

This article argues that the mass arming in Britain during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars was not a wholly new phenomenon but the culmination of a long-running process of greater mobilization of manpower. That process was significantly advanced in the American war, when more Britons and Irishmen went into uniform than in any earlier eighteenth-century conflict, and when men from widely different social backgrounds participated in a military or naval capacity. © Institute of Historical Research 1999.
