Description


The death of King Alexander III of Scotland in 1290, leaving no legitimate heir, paved the way for Edward I of England's invasion of Scotland. This well-illustrated guide outlines the events of the rebellion that ensued, the defeat of the Englidh by William Wallace at Stirling Bridge in 1297, followed a year later by the overwhelming defeat of the Scots at Falkirk. With lots of maps, reconstruction drawings, photos and illustrations, Pete Armstrong examines the events of the battles themselves, the wider campaigns of the English and Scots, the nature of the armies and their commanders, the aftermath of the battles and how the battlefields appear to the modern visitor.
