Publisher Description

A journey to the Highland battlefield where this landmark event in Scottish history took place, with numerous maps and illustrations.
 
Culloden Moor is one of the most famous battles in British history and, for the Scots, the battle is pre-eminent, surpassing even Bannockburn. In this decisive and bloody encounter in 1746, the Duke of Cumberland’s government army defeated the Jacobite rebels led by Prince Charles Edward Stuart. Yet, despite the attention paid to this critical event—in particular to Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite legend—few writers have concentrated on the battle itself and on the Highland battlefield on which it was fought.
 
Stuart Reid, in this revised third edition of his bestselling guide, does just that. He tells the story of the campaign and sets out in a graphic and easily understood way the movements and deployments of the opposing forces, and he describes in vivid detail the deadly combat that followed. Incorporating the latest documentary and archaeological research and featuring a completely new and expanded section on the armies, it also invites visitors to explore for themselves this historic ground on which the tragic battle was fought.
