“The author is one of the most knowledgeable on the military history of Scotland…..Readers of this book are given a virtual battle tour, the narrative being so well written, I certainly felt as is I was walking along the lines of British Infantry waiting nervously for the highlanders to charge…Read this and without a doubt you will want to research the subject further and perhaps be inspired to visit the actual location…I have great pleasure to recommend this to anyone interested in military history.
