Notes:
We know the thrilling, terrible stories of the battles of the Napoleonic wars - but what of those left behind? The people on a Norfolk farm, in a Yorkshire mill, a Welsh iron foundry, an Irish village, a London bank or a Scottish mountain? The aristocrats and paupers, old and young, butchers and bakers and candlestick makers - how did the war touch their lives? Jenny Uglow follows the gripping back-and-forth of the first global war, but turns the news upside down, seeing how it reached the people.

I thoroughly recommend this book. Whilst full of very interesting historical information it is a page turning read brought to life by the use of diaries and letters of many people of the period.
