Culloden Moor is one of the most famous battles in British history and, for the Scots, the battle is pre-eminent, surpassing even Bannockburn. In this decisive and bloody encounter in 1746 the Duke of Cumberland's government army defeated the Jacobite rebels led by Prince Charles Edward Stuart.

Yet, despite the attention paid to this critical event – in particular to Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite legend – few writers have concentrated on the battle itself and on the Highland battlefield on which it was fought. Stuart Reid, in this revised third edition of his best-selling guide, does just that. He tells the story of the campaign and sets out in a graphic and easily understood way the movements and deployments of the opposing forces – and he describes in vivid detail the deadly combat that followed.

Incorporating the latest documentary and archaeological research and featuring a completely new and expanded section on the armies, it invites visitors to explore for themselves this historic ground on which the tragic battle was fought.

It manages to combine both history and a modern guide to the battlefield, in a clear and entertaining fashion.

The Armourer, February 2019

This would be an excellent concise history and guide to Culloden if one was travelling light and restricted to carrying a single book on the subject. Wargamers wishing simply to recreate the battle as a 'one-off' tabletop engagement may well find this volume contains most of the information they need; the series of maps showing the significant events of Culloden will prove particularly useful. It would also be suitable for pupils studying the Jacobites who desire more military detail than is found in school textbooks.

This is an example of a well-written book that transports the reader to a place and time of importance.

Clash of Steel

... in-depth and accessible account of the battle itself. Described in vivid detail, Reid incorporates the latest historical and archaeological findings in such a way that it is easy to follow and even easier to get lost in the story.

Reid is well-known for his wide range of successful military books and Culloden 1746 does not disappoint. Graphic and well-written, Reid invites readers to delve into the battle itself.
