254pp., 8 plates, 3 maps. 2018. Killiecrankie saw the first, and most successful, Highland Charge, as the clansmen broke the line of the Government’s redcoats ‘in the twinkling of an eye’, and though outnumbered the Jacobites achieved a stunning victory. The Highlanders, however, suffered debilitating losses of almost one third of their strength, and their leader, John Graham the Viscount of Dundee, was killed.
