While the epic siege of Derry is usually accorded its proper place in history, the contemporaneous exploits of the Enniskillen men are often overlooked. This is manifestly unjust because the Enniskilleners demonstrated bravery and heroism in battle at least equal to that of the defenders of Londonderry. Some, of course, rate the actions of the Enniskillen men more highly. As far as Revd Andrew Hamilton, the Rector of Kilskeery and author of "A True Relation of the Actions of the Inniskilling Men" (1690), was concerned 'The Derry men saved a city but the Enniskilleners saved a kingdom.'
This new edition, with reset text and an Introduction by Gordon Lucy, is taken from the annotated Belfast edition of 1813 which was published and printed by George Berwick.
