Synopsis: War in the 18th century was a bloody business. A line of infantry would slowly march, to the beat of a drum, into a hail of enemy fire. Whole ranks would be wiped out by cannon fire and musketry. Christopher Duffy's investigates the brutalities of the battlefield and also traces the lives of the officer to the soldier from the formative conditions of their earliest years to their violent deaths or retirement, and shows that, below their well-ordered exteriors, the armies of the Age of Reason underwent a revolutionary change from medieval to modern structures and ways of thinking.

Review: `It is very much the sort of thing that one hoped someone would write about armies in the Age of Reason; and now it is a matter of great pleasure that it has not only been done, but also done so superlatively well.' - Army Historical Research Society

`Christopher Duffy is a wonderful writer who combines scholarship, depth and polish. The Social detail is astonishing, and his stiffly titled Military Experience in the Age of Reason will have a wide readership outside the regimental library. No one involved with the period, whether novelist, film maker, politician, or indeed psychologist, should fail to consult it ' - Country Life
