War and Currency

In his new book Dr Kevin Clancy seeks to explore this relationship through the objects left behind after the guns have fallen silent. Along the way he unearths some moving stories that marry moments of profound change with the detail of everyday life.

Illustrated throughout, this book offers an accessible amount of some of the main themes that have defined money and war. Against the backdrop of major tuning points, nations have identified themselves through their currencies and their conflicts. It is the story of the iconography of the victorious prince or the loot sacked from a defeated city; the regular pay of a mercenary army or the heart-warming souvenir created in a muddy trench.
