Killing Fields of Scotland (Kindle)
AD83 to 1746
Most people are familiar with references to Scottish battles such as Bannockburn and Flodden but know little if anything about those events. Rugby and soccer fans outside Scotland may wonder at the sign '1314' held up by Scottish fans and not know that it is the date of the Battle of Bannockburn when an English king was defeated on Scottish soil. The battle is also commemorated in Scotland's unofficial 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.

If you are a student of Scottish warfare and interested in a detailed chronological account of Scottish battles, then reading the book from cover to cover will be illuminating.Hexham Local History Society
This is primarily a book for those interested in military history but it is also a reference work for anyone interested in particular aspects of Scottish history because the division of the book in to broad historical periods enables a general reader to concentrate on a particular historical period.
Fascinating and informative. An excellent read.East Lothian Life
