Oxfordshire has been involved with warfare throughout its history, ranging from Dark Age conflicts and the Viking Wars of the ninth and tenth centuries, to the cataclysmic conflicts of the twentieth century. With the notable exception of the first Civil War, few battles have been fought on its soil, but Oxfordshire people have participated in military activities in all parts of the world, the Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry having served around the globe. Oxfordshire At War Through Time follows the story of the county and its conflicts from the Roman period until the Second World War, with particular emphasis on the Civil War, the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, the First World War and the Second World War.
