Jacobite Rebellion: 1745-46, The

Description:

With updates from the author, specially commissioned maps, and 30 new images, this is a concise overview of the Jacobite rising of 1745. The Jacobite Rebellion is one of history's most heavily romanticized and mythologized campaigns. Led by the charismatic Bonnie Prince Charlie and fought in the main by clansmen loyal to the Stuarts, the revolt initially saw government forces outmanoeuvred and outfought before the Prince's march on London was halted at Derby. But the following spring, pursued back into the Highlands by the Duke of Cumberland, the Prince's army made its doomed last stand on the moor of Culloden. Dr Gregory Fremont-Barnes examines this key turning point in British history, analysing the dynastic struggles of two royal houses, the Rebellion's manoeuvres and battles and the tragic aftermath for the Highlands. Updated and revised, with full-colour maps and new images, this is a detailed introduction to the campaign that saw the Stuart dynasty's final attempt to regain the British throne.
