216pp., illus., maps, 8 colour plates of uniforms & flags, P.B. 2018. This book is the first full length account of the military struggle between forces loyal to the newly established Scottish government and the Jacobite cause. The most substantial chapter is a blow by blow account of the battle of Killiecrankie, beginning with the march to conflict on the day itself, discussions over whether to fight, deployment and initial exchanges of fire. Then the crux of the battle is described, the rush of the Highlanders, the musketry of their opponents, melee and the flight and pursuit.
