Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An excellent book, containing a stunning novella, a reference and educational section, and some brilliant artwork. It doesn't suit the agenda of many historians to tell the tale of the Irish brigade who helped the Scots at Culloden, but this author does so, and does it well, from Fontenoy to Culloden. The book also shows the author's great knowledge about the clans and how they fought, and is also fairly realistic about the risings and their chances of success. Above all, the story is excellent, near genius, apart from the end, which is rather abrupt, but that doesn't spoil the book at all. Due diligence has also been paid in analysis of the hanoverian english and their Scottish-satelite pro-union allies. This would make a great film. thoroughly enjoyable. very different. very pro-jacobite/pro-scottish, but the author himself admits that in the foreword and makes no apologies for it, and it doesn't affect his fair analysis of the hanoverian side. this book would also be of great interest to those with an interest in the irish side of the jacobite wars, and how events in ireland were often intertwined with those in scotland, don't just take my word for it, buy it! i like this author's books as he offers something different to the usual establishment dross.

Format: Paperback
This book is an original account of the adventures of the Irish Brigade-fictional but based on true events- during the '45 in the weeks leading up to the battle of Culloden. A fast-paced, exciting story based around an experienced, battle-hardened Scottish officer, Jack Cameron, who becomes embroiled in a sequence of savage skirmishes during the Hanoverian advance from Aberdeen.

Captain Cameron has more than just English cavalrymen to deal with, he has a brother with a large chip on his shoulder leading a squadron of Kingston's Horse, hell-bent on the desruction of any suspected Jacobites as well as his sibling. The Jacobite officer finds himself torn between loyalty to his regiment, the Jacobite cause and to his pregnant mistress who lives in a town lying in the path of Cumberland's advance.

A gripping read throughout, full of action and the gruesome reality of battle in the 18th century. The author himself admits that he is pro-Jacobite in his sympathies and he shows an admiration for the Irish Brigade and the fighting qualities they brought to the Jacobite army but remains fairly realistic in his assessments of each army and the cause they fought for.

On the down side the story is rather short and comes to an abrupt end which is somewhat of an anti-climax. Some of the 'facts' used such as Barrel's regiment being cowardly and having ran away at Falkirk are innaccurate as they were one of very few who stood their ground in that particular encounter (as well as Culloden albeit with less success). I also felt that the inclusion of an unrealistic love story was a tad unnecessary.

However, well worth the purchase and, as a previous review noted, easy to follow which makes the book ideal for those not particularly interested in the wider scheme of events or for those seeking an introduction to the subject.

This is a truely excellent read that can be enjoyed by everyone not just those interested in history. It is very easy to read and understand even if it is not the type of book that you would normally purchase. It is a griping story that took me on an emotional rollercoaster. A well written book,which i would recommend as a must buy.
