To Escape the Monster's Clutches: notes and documents illustrating the preparations in North Yorkshire to repel the invasion threatened by the French in 1793, compiled by M.Y.Ashcroft

This book focuses on the involvement of the civilian population in the effort to defend the North Riding against the French. It demonstrates the response of one county to official government directives, propaganda and rumour, and reveals the slow movement of government policy from vague appeals for patriotic volunteers to a system of forced recruitment.
