8 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The participation of George IV in public affairs had enduring positive influences. His support for overseas campaigns against Napoleon, culminating in such historic victories as Trafalgar and Waterloo, consolidated Britain's status as the preeminent world power amid the great social and economic upheavals of the industrial revolution. His passion for the arts left England with cultural legacies such as the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, Regent's Park and the National Portrait Gallery in London, and the defining architectural image of Regency style. At once farce, tragedy, and melodrama, the story of George IV is depicted with artistry and great force, introducing a cast of contemporary figures such as Beau Brummell, Lord Byron, and Jane Austen

Victoria's wars : the rise of empire by Saul David( Book )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the period known as the 'Dual Monarchy', from Queen Victoria's accession in 1837 to the death of her husband, Albert, in 1861, the British Empire almost quintupled in size. This is the story of that extraordinary quarter-century of imperial conquest and the people who made it happen. It is, in particular, the story of the two major and nine medium-sized wars that were fought in the name of trade, civilization and the balance of power. In a fast-moving narrative that ranges from the ministries and royal residences of London to the harsh terrain of India, Russia and the Far East, Saul David shows how Britain ruthlessly exploited her position as the world's only superpower to expand her Empire

All the king's men : the British soldier from the Restoration to Waterloo by Saul David( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The British soldier", wrote a Prussian officer who served with Wellington, "is vigorous, well fed, by nature highly brave and intrepid, trained to the most vigorous discipline, and admirably well armed...These circumstances explain how this army ...has never yet been defeated in the field". From the Restoration of Charles II in 1660 to the Downfall of Napoleon in 1815, Britain won a series of major wars against France that enabled her to lay the foundations of a global empire. By Waterloo, she was the paramount maritime and industrial power in the world, and would remain so for much of the nineteenth century. This is the story of that extraordinary century and a half of martial success and the people who made it possible: the soldier - kings William III and the first two Georges; the generals Marlborough, Wolfe, Moore and Wellington; and the ordinary British redcoats who - despite harsh service conditions that included low pay, poor housing, inadequate food and brutal discipline - rarely let their commanders down in battles as far afield as Blenheim, Plassey, Quebec and Waterloo
