Descripción

New York 1962, Macmillan, US First edition, hard bound in dust jacket., 6x9., Fine/Fine condition, 216 pages, illus, maps, bibliog, index. -------------------------------------------------On 23rd July 1745 Prince Charles Edward arrived in Scotland with nine companions, few arms and little money. The news aroused a combination of dismay and enthusiasm amongst his supporters, but despite their misgivings they joined his standard in sufficient numbers to win a victory over the royal army at Prestonpans in September. There followed the hazardous march into England. At Derby the Jacobites were obliged to turn back. So little did disappointment and the long retreat to Scotland impair their will to fight, however, that six weeks later, again contrary to expectation, they defeated their pursuers at Falkirk. The reckoning was not met until Culloden.The authors of this definitive account of the last battles to be fought on British soil have been students of the Forty-five for over 30 years. Their researches have yielded far more than a fresh and unpartisan view of the many controversial personalities and episodes of the Rising. In their description of the fiercelyfought engagements of the campaign Katherine Tomasson (author of The Jacobite General, a biography of Lord George Murray) and Francis Buist draw heavily on eye-witness material -some of it previously unpublishedand on their intimate knowledge of the battle-fields, to provide an evocation of the emotions and experiences of the combatants. In addition to the convincingly realized portrait of the young Prince, are the figures of Sir John Cope, Lord George Murray, and the Duke of Cumberland.The narrative is supported by a varied selection of contemporary illustrations and by authentic, largescale plans of the three battle-fields.
