Acknowledgements

I am indebted to many friends and colleagues for their help while writing this book. First, I wish to thank the staff of the Bodleian Library for their assistance over many years; with particular thanks to Helen Rogers and Vera Ryhajlo in the Upper Reading Room, whose cheerful welcome always eased me into work, and to Sally Chestnutt in the Music Room, who patiently guided me through many catalogues. The staff in the Manuscript Room of the British Library were consistently helpful and the staff of the National Army Museum library answered my queries on military matters.

Major Patrick Timmons, Curator of The Queen's Royal Hussars' Collection, generously devoted time to showing me their archive and the regimental treasures. Catherine Morris followed up references to reviews of the 1855 edition of the Journal in the Colindale Newspaper Library.

I have enjoyed lively conversations and exchanges of information with Helen Rappaport; I'm particularly grateful to her for introducing me to the letters of Capitaine de Berthois. I also wish to thank other friends who have generously given their time, including Petra and Jeremy Lewis for help with the initial stages of the Introduction and Stella and Michael Irwin for a close reading of the final draft. Vicky Clouston provided continual support; she not only read successive drafts but produced excellent translations of the Berthois letters and the song, [L'Amazone].

I also thank my editor Matthew Cotton and the staff of Oxford University Press for so efficiently seeing the book through the final stages of production.

I owe special thanks to John Kelly for his unstinting generosity in commenting not only on the main text but also on the footnotes, even when submerged in his own. And I owe much to the enthusiastic support of my father, the late Michael Rahilly, R.N., who commented on the successive drafts and provided me with valuable information on ordnance and naval matters. I should point out, however, that any blunders, military or otherwise, are my own.

Above all I owe a great debt of gratitude to James Price who initiated this edition and has been closely involved in its development to the end. He was a constant friend and generous editor throughout our time working together. This book is dedicated to him.
