Rediscovering the older past through the younger past
Great essay at the Chronicle of Higher Ed on Google Books’ rediscovery of the long 19C.
High notes for EMEMHians like myself include:
- The Austro-Hungarian Kriegsarchiv’s Feldzüge des Prinzen Eugen von Savoyen
- The French War Ministry’s Mémoires militaires
- Richard Cannon’s collection of British regimental histories
- Charles Dalton’s English Army Lists and Commission Registers.
Good stuff. And free.
