Description
 
Military barracks have played an important part in the social as well as the military history of Britain. They have served many purposes, being homes, training establishments and recruitment depots, and were meant to impress (and, at times, to overawe) the local population as well as foreign enemies. Some towns, such as Aldershot and Colchester, were almost defined by the barracks located within them. This book looks at the buildings themselves, from early times to the twentieth century, and describes the life that was led in the barracks by the soldiers (and sailors) and their wives.

Contents:
Introduction
The spread of barracks in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries
Victorian barracks
Life in nineteenth century barracks
Women in barracks
Naval barracks
Twentieth century barracks
