Unknown Soldiers Podcast Episode 25, "Camp Followers": Sources

My main source for this episode is one of the only works to really analyze the subject of women camp followers in a systemic fashion - that is, Lynn. I gleaned multiple details, stories, and other commentaries from the other works, especially the story of the Chevalier D'on.
