Opis produktu:

This historical guide retells, in graphic detail, the story of nine of the most important battles to be fought in Scotland south of the Highland Line. By skilful use of maps, diagrams and photographs the author explains the complex sequence of events that makes these encounters so fascinating. He provides a detailed tour of each battleground as it appears to the visitor in the present day and rediscovers the lanes and by-ways tramped by soldiers hundreds of years ago. 

This is an interesting work which investigates famous Scottish battles ranging from the Wars of Independence to the Jacobite uprising. The book is very well researched at an academic level. It is rich in detail and local knowledge. I admire its "warts and all" approach to presenting these conflicts which were often scrappier, worse led, and lower key than Romanticism would suggest.
