The British amateur military tradition of raising auxiliary forces for home defence long preceded the establishment of a standing army. This was a model that was widely emulated in British colonies. This volume of essays seeks to examine the role of citizen soldiers in Britain and its empire during the Victorian period.

About the Series

Warfare, Society and Culture

This series focuses on works which integrate analysis of military operations and combat into wider social and cultural analysis, and which examine warfare as more than a European phenomenon. It covers the period from the early modern era and its military revolution to the end of the twentieth century.
