dc.description O'Leary, Paul, 'Arming the Citizens: the Volunteer Force in Nineteenth-Century Wales', In: 'Wales and War: Society, Politics and Religion in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries', (Cardiff: University of Wales Press), pp.63-81, 2007 en
dc.description.abstract This collection of essays re-examines the reaction of the Welsh people to war. Focusing on a series of conflicts from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries it offers a sharp corrective to the generally accepted picture of Wales as a nation wedded to pacifism. If those in the urban and industrial south, tied as they were into Britain's Imperial economy, were often enthusiastic proponents of and participants in armed conflict, a majority even in the rural areas could be relied upon to rally to the flag. en
