Highland Clansman, 1314-1746 Paperback / softback
by Stuart Reid
Illustrated by Angus McBride
Part of the Warrior S. series
The Scottish clans were comprised of an agricultural peasantry dominated by a warrior aristocracy.
The author details the development of this clan system and their interaction with one another, which often led to conflict.
The rise and fall of the Jacobite cause under Bonny Prince Charlie in the 1745 rebellion is extensively covered, and their battle tactics at Culloden are analyzed as to why they were so utterly defeated.
