The first two of three volumes from Mark Hewitson which explore the experiences of conflict in modern Germany, and the resounding impact of these across Europe and the world. The first volume, Absolute War, reassesses the meaning of military conflict for the millions of German subjects who were directly implicated in the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. The second, The People's War, puts forward an original interpretation of German conceptions of war at a pivotal moment of European history, marked by the rise of nationalism and the breakdown of the existing states' system in the 1850s and 1860s.
