This review is from: Flodden (Revealing History) (Paperback)
The battle of Flodden is one of the more overlooked of battles in British history. It was, however, arguably the most important battle in the story of Scottish and English history. James IV of Scotland, who personally led his men into battle and died with them, along with most the Scottish political elite, was, realistically, the last proper hope for an independent Scottish kingdom. Of course, Scotland's independence did not die with him, but it never recovered its position as an important player in european politics.

It is even more of a shame, then, that this battle - and James's tactics at it - has so often been misrepresented and misunderstood. Here Barr clearly reconstructs and explains not only what happened, why it happened but also why it has provoked such confusion as well. Other subsequent authors writing about the battle have largely accepted Barr analysis. None have explained it quite so well, however.
