Cookson considers the impact of war on the British Isles through a detailed examination of the armed response to the French strategic encirclement of Britain and Ireland during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars. Besides providing the first comprehensive survey of the mobilization of armed force for the regular army, militia, and volunteers, he demonstrates particularly the effect on Scotland and on urban communities.
