Description
 
Scottish history has been shaped and defined by a series of great battles--Bannockburn, Flodden and Culloden have a resonance and impact far beyond Scotland itself. In the first full military history for many years the author weaves chronicle, narrative, and analysis together in a masterly way, recreating the drama and passion of centuries past.

From Celtic warfare, the feudal hosts and the professional armies of the eighteenth century, to guerrilla warfare, pitched battles, sieges and Border reivers, Scotland is unique in having had almost every major type of warfare take place within its frontiers.

Includes detailed battle plans, and full background information, and sections on the development of warfare (tactics, equipment and styles of fighting).
