Description

This volume opens a window on the popular image of the British soldier and sailor from the Restoration through the end of the 18th century. For the student of the London stage, this book not only provides the military flavor of prologues, epilogues, songs, dances, music, spectaculars, mainpieces, and afterpieces, but also demonstrates the contribution of casting and staging. For the student of British military history, it demonstrates how dramatic entertainments provided insights on field and shipboard life, recruitment, impressment, pay, and the militia. It also illustrates how active stagecraft recreated the sights, sounds and smells of the man-of-war and camp.
