The battlefields of Britain are a strangely neglected part of the British heritage. A few, such as Bosworth and Culloden, have visitor centres, and efforts have been made to explain what happened at the battle, but most have no more than a monument, if that, to commemorate the valour of the combatants and the lives lost these centuries ago.

In this book John Kinross describes sixty-nine battles that took place on English or Scottish soil, from King Alfred's defeat of the Danes at Ashdown in 871 to the final crushing of the Jacobite cause in the snow at Culloden on 16th April 1746. He sets each battle in its historical context, describes the actiom in relation to the landscape and gives a guide to the site as it is today.
