This review is from: Damn' Rebel Bitches: The Women of the '45 (Paperback)
I'm of the generation who learned about history at school and was bored. University was little better. I didn't care that various aggressive men had fought over hierarchical states where women were hardly ever more than a footnote. Then I discovered 'Damn Rebel Bitches.
This book brought the past to life for me in the way that only historical fiction had done previously. The characters are alive(they once really were!) and I particularly enjoyed the story of my ancestor, the so-called Colonel Anne Mackintosh, who defied her husband and fought for Prince Charlie. A brilliant book. I hope Maggie Craig writes more.
