This chapter is a detailed chronological description and analysis of the military and political careers of important early nineteenth century soldier and ex-soldier activists, both rank and file and junior officers. This covers late eighteenth century military radicals, and the impact of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars, through to popular reforming movements like Owenism, co-operation and Chartism. It makes a special study of the influential Napier Brothers, who were successful senior officers and committed political radicals. This all forms a unique and untold story of ‘military radicals’.

Keywords:   Radicals, Activists, French Revolution, Owenism, Chartism, Napier brothers, ‘Military radicals’
