The series aims to develop a multi disciplinary approach to the analysis of the military and war by combining political, social, cultural, art and gender history with  military history. It wants to extend the scope of traditional histories of the period by discussing war and revolution across the Atlantic as well as within Europe, thereby contributing to a new global history of conflict in the eighteenth and nineteenth century.

The series started in the fall of 2008 and celebrates the publication of 50 volumes in the fall 2023.  Recently it was named by David Bell (Princeton University)  the “best series on the history of the French Revolutionary and  Napoleonic Wars.
