Scottish Battles by George Forbes

Scottish Battles by George Forbes is an excellent introduction to Scottish military history. The book describes battles that took place against the Scots from Roman times to the rising of 1745.

I don't know much about this area of military history so the book was an excellent addition to the collection. It lays out in detail the political background to the battles. this is often something that is lackingin military history. The assumption is made that you know why they are fighting. This book is highly recommended.

Four Scottish history I've also reviewed Scotland's Black Death The Foul Death of the English by Karen Jillings
