The first-ever book on the suites of travelling furniture used by British soldiers over one-and-a-half centuries. For the travelling British soldier, campaign furniture – chairs, desks, and other items, brought the comfort and civility of home to life under canvas. Made to be carried on the march and assembled on site, campaign furniture reached an aesthetic apex in 18th- and 19th-century England.
