In Th­ese Times: Living in Bri­tain Through Napoleon’s Wars 1793-1815

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - THE GUIDE -

by Jenny Uglow (Faber & Faber, 752 pages, £25) Much has been writ­ten about the Napoleonic wars, but up un­til now, the im­pact on those left be­hind in Bri­tain has rather been over­looked. Uglow seeks to rec­tify that in this weighty tome, delv­ing into the 20-year con­flict with the French which af­fected the likes of Nor­folk farm­ers, Ir­ish vil­lagers, York­shire mill work­ers and aris­to­crats to pau­pers.
