Auldearn 1645 : The Marquis of Montrose's Scottish Campaign Paperback / softback
Illustrated by Gerry Embleton
Part of the Osprey Campaign S. series
Scotland in the 17th century was an independent country whose king was the King of England.
Charles' proposed remodelling of the Scottish Kirk succeeded in alienating the Protestant population.
In 1638 a National Covenant was signed throughout the country, opposing the King's reforms.
In 1639 and 1640 two brief wars saw King Charles defeated and Scotland's independence re-asserted.
However, one of the leaders, Montrose, was eclipsed by his rivals and in 1644 Montrose raised a Royalist rebellion.
In the course of a year he won a string of victories that left him in momentary control of Scotland.
The battle of Auldeam was the centrepiece of this campaign.
This book details the remarkable Scottish campaign waged by the Marquis of Montrose.
