Edinburgh, 1989, Mainstream, UK First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 8 1/2 x 11, glossy page stock, VG/VG condition, 192 pages, prof. illustrated in B&W and color, bibliog, index. This book illustrates and interprets, in a unique way, the military part of Europe's oldest alliance. Drawing upon public and private collections in both Scotland and France, Stephen Wood Scotland's senior military writer - analyses in depth the character of the Auld Alliance, or la vieille alliance, which manifested itself over and over again as principally and primarily a military alliance.Forged in the dark days at the end of the 13th century, when both Scotland and France were faced with the resurgent and aggressive England of Edward I, the treaty that bound together the two nations was really only a formal recognition of a relationship that went back to before the Norman Conquest. The need for mutual support against England continued actively until the Union of the Crowns in 1603, was maintained in character - if not in aim - under the Stuarts and flourished briefly during the Jacobite rebellions. Stephen Wood's analysis shows how the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars were no more than an interlude in a continuous process, how the traditional amity resurfaced in the mid-19th century and continued through two world wars to the Liberation of France and, indeed, beyond to the present day. It is a story rich in anecdote and not without myth, yet one which deserves to be told in appropriately colourful fashion to reflect the splendour and panache of both countries.
