Renaissance and early modernists will rightly marvel at his fluency in the primary record. Lee's framework for the study of war and culture, and his original exploration of the idea of restraint, will inform and enrich all future discussions. Lee has produced a sound study bolstered by solid statistical and colorful anecdotal evidence, a skillful blend of old-fashioned narrative with nuanced analysis. His revealing case studies come from the English-speaking world of the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries, but the lessons he draws from them should be taken to heart by historians studying any region or epoch.
Lee establishes that the severity of troops on campaign-their 'frightfulness,' in his terminology--reflected their own sense of identity, the degree to which they perceived their enemy as alien or similar--barbarians or brothers--and the moral limits or license regarded as appropriate in dealing with such adversaries. Lee's argument emphasizes the cultural contexts of warfare and the need to study it from the bottom up, as something consistent with the conscience of the rank and file, not simply as something commanded by the officers who led them.
Lee's elucidation of the kinds of careful distinctions and regulations those in authority made in the apparent chaos of war, especially as changing military technology required more recognizably modern discipline, shows how all of society was affected by military matters. Lee makes clear that the level of violence in war--particularly the treatment of prisoners and civilians--was not just a matter of how soldiers and states perceived their enemies. Englishmen were more restrained in fighting brothers other Englishmen than barbarians Irishmen or Native Americans.

But violence also depended on complex and shifting relationships among the size of forces, the development of the state, the influence of international law and social norms, and the extent to which civilians were drawn into the fighting. This is an unusually rich and rewarding history.

Anglo-American Warfare, review Clifford J. In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Barbarians and Brothers is a beautifully written work "about restraint and atrocity, about the many ways societies seek to limit war's destructive power, and about the choices and systems that unleash it" 2.

English soldiers largely respected accepted standards of negotiation and imprisonment to degrees notably absent from skirmishes against the foreign Scots and Irish. Nevertheless, there were limitations to such restraint.

When states lacked the administrative capacity to properly supply their armies, soldiers were forced to seek out food and shelter by other means. Thus, forage and plunder were not always angry acts of retribution; they were often practical necessities.
Of course, common heritage did not always guarantee brotherly restraint. Parties in a civil war might declare their opponents to be traitors and thus deserving of treatment as barbarians.
