One Army, Many Languages: Foreign Troops and Linguistic Diversity in the Eighteenth- Century French Military

Christopher Tozzi, Howard University


“In Languages and the Military, the editors provide excellent case studies which raise hitherto undiscussed topics. … A broad range of sources have been used in preparing this volume, including institutional publications and (annual) reports, interviews, parliamentary discussions, documents of state institutions. This breadth makes the book particularly valuable for readers working on similar topics.” (Tamara Scheer, European History Quarterly, Vol. 46 (1), 2016)
