Book Description

10 Oct 2006 Elite (Book 149)
This book is the story of Bonnie Prince Charlie's army at Culloden. Beginning with initial recruitment, it will strip away the myth and expose the realities of life in the Jacobite rebellion army, a force which included volunteers, 'pressed men', mercenaries and French forces, sent over to assist as part of the 'Auld Alliance'. Unit organization, weapons and tactics are discussed in depth, as well as the vicious battles that were fought to secure the crown. The wonderful colour plates and rare images illustrate the variety of uniforms that were worn ranging from tartan to regular army dress. This is an essential introductory guide to the Jacobite Armies as well as a definitive guide to the uniforms and weaponry of the period.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good although flawed on Kindle 8 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a general interest reader, whose only previous acquaintance with this period of history was Stuart Prebble's excellent account of Culloden, I found this book to be a useful way to begin to delve deeper into the background and participants. As a Kindle book, the battlefield maps are hard to view. Hopefully in future it will be possible to pan and zoom images on Kindle. The Kindle version also separates the colour plates from their descriptions. Even so, recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scots Wa'hae 14 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book clearly compliments another Osprey book 'Cumberland's Culloden Army'. It is useful for the description/illustrations of 18th Century Highland dress (+ Lowlanders, the Manchester Regt and Franco-Irish troops) and a certain amount about Jacobite army organisation in the '45. I would also recommend the old Osprey 'Armies of the Jacobite Rebellions 1689 - 1745' which illustrates troops from both sides throughout those years, has a very good summary of political and military events, including a first rate analysis of what the British army went through between the reigns of James II and George III. An excellent map of Scotland, covering 1689 - 1745, from the 1982 book has been reproduced in the more recent ones though they are only about the '45.

5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed Source on the Jacobite Uprisings 5 Dec 2007
By K. Murphy - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book, along with several other Osprey titles by Stuart Reid, is a fine source on the warriors of the Scottish Highlands at the time of the Jacobite Rebellion of '45. To the average person, these are what Scots are supposed to look like, with the kilts and plaids and bagpipes.

For me, the most useful sections of the book span pages 3-13 and 50-55; the first dealing with the social origins of the Jacobite warriors, and the second detailing their battle tactics; the latter topic has often been misunderstood by students of history. A good slice of the book takes the individual Highland regiments and examines their uniforms and flags-information that is admittedly only useful for someone with a professional interest in the topic. For lighter reading on the Jacobite Army, I would recommend Reid's book Highland Clansman 1689-1745.

The plates are up to Osprey's usual standards and help clarify the descriptions of the various regiments. Overall, this is an excellent source for someone interested in the history of Scotland, or in the 18th-19th Century Highlanders; though I am not sure I would recommend it for an introduction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great illustrations 4 Dec 2007
By danny boy - Published on
The text is interesting to read. The author is very familiar with Scottish history and tells an interesting tale. What works for me are the very nice illustrations by Zaboly. Very detailed, inspiring and a boon to uniformologists out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reveal the underlying truths about the event. 5 Nov 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
New additions to Osprey's military history titles are specific, detailed, and perfect additions for collections which go beyond the general interest level. Stuart Reid's THE SCOTTISH JACOBITE ARMY 1945-46 tells of an uprising which has been colored and embellished throughout history - but this treatment foregoes some of the color in favor of concrete facts, using the work of historians and modern source references to change the myths and reveal the underlying truths about the event.
