Report from His Majesty’s Commissioners for Inquiring into the System of Military Punishments in The Army 1836


A vast volume containing the official 1836 report presented to Parliament on military punishments in the British Army during and after the Napoleonic Wars. There is evidence from senior officers, NCOs and men recording the sometimes savage penalties (flogging, branding and hanging) imposed and their efficacy. A must for those seriously interested in the Napoleonic Wars.
