About this product
- DescriptionMost people are familiar with references to Scottish battles such as Banckburn and Flodden but kw little if anything about those events. Rugby and soccer fans outside Scotland may wonder at the sign '1314' held up by Scottish fans and t kw that it is the date of the Battle of Banckburn when an English king was defeated on Scottish soil. The battle is also commemorated in Scotland's ufficial national anthem, 'The Flower of Scotland'. Battles fought on Scottish soil include those of the Scottish Wars of Independence, those occasioned by the English Civil Wars and the Jacobite Rebellions. This book tells the stories of these battles and many others fought in Scotland from the Roman victory at Mons Graupius in AD 83 to the defeat of Bonnie Prince Charlie at Culloden Moor in 1746.
