NETHERLANDS MAIL in TIMES of TURMOIL Volume 2 1795-1815
The main objective of this study of Dutch field post and related subjects has been to cover philatelic aspects of correspondence related to wars, military operations, upheavals and civil unrest. This is Volume 2 of three. All three Volumes are to be in the English language only, US letter format (279 x 216 mm) and colour throughout.
This is a CD edition of Volume 2, as the print edition is out of stock. It is available as a single CD for £10.00 or as part of a three volume set comprising print editions of Volumes 1 and 3, and a CD of Volume 2, for £100.00 for all 3 volumes.
The 450-page full colour second volume of the author's trilogy includes extensive historical background with never-before published illustrations as well as a 27 page catalogue of French, English and Dutch military and semi-military markings.
Volume 2, the French Napoleonic Era, spans two decades.
Yet it can hardly be matched in earthshaking significance because of
the almost constant state of war, countless battles and peace treaties,
reshuffled allegiances and political alignments, the creation of vassal
states and annexations.
In addition to extensive coverage of military and political events and their effects on the delivery of letters, this volume, like its predecessor, depicts the human or rather inhuman aspects of war. Excerpts are quoted from letters written from the battle zones, the subject of women and orphans in the army is addressed as are the hardships of the Russian campaign.
