Sample text

Matthew Brown examines the making of a Latin American hero in the person of Simón Bolívar, and shows how he was appropriated in the formation of national identity across the new nations of Spanish America. 53 In the old continent, too, memories of victories in the Napoleonic Wars came to enjoy a wide resonance in the countries that had fought in them. Karen Hagemann examines the construction of the collective memory of the Battle of Leipzig from 16–19 October 1813 and the contested recollections of the Wars of 1813–1815 in German Central Europe more generally.

60 One answer, of course, for those who were too unsettled to face the challenges of civilian life, was to seek adventure elsewhere, in other wars, often on different continents. 62 We might well ask how far peripheral wars after 1815—on the American frontier, in the Caucasus, in the Balkans, in Algeria—provided an opportunity to soften the transition from war to peace, providing an outlet for veterans incapable of adjusting to the postwar world and for a new generation keen to share in the glory of their ancestors.
