The ninth volume of the The New Cambridge Modern History begins with the outbreak of war on the execution of Louis XVI, bridges the watershed of 1815 and closes, for the most part, with the avoidance of war on the abdication of Charles X. It was a period of wars and revolutions when Europe was preoccupied with France, and the role of war itself shaped the direction of change and determined its extent.
