The 1745 Jacobite Rebellion was a turning point in British history. At its height it threatened to completely destabilise the British state, while disrupting her military capability in Europe and colonial activities in America and beyond. Yet the reality of thiscrucial episode continues to be obscured by fiction and myth: the heroic but doomed Bonnie Prince Charlie, versus the heartless Butcher Cumberland.This magnificent, wide-ranging account draws extensively on contemporary sources, revealing the thoughts of key players and eyewitnesses as these remarkable events played out. It presents a story more complex, paradoxical and even tragic than the myth suggests
