Product description

From the Back Cover

Peter Traquair's grim tale of treachery, greed and slaughter strips away the myths surrounding two of Scotland's greatest heroes, William Wallace and Robert Bruce. His sweeping account of the Anglo-Scottish wars reveals the passions and plots that divided the English and Scottish courts that divided the English and Scottish courts and presents the first modern account of the campaigns after Robert's death. Three English kings wage war: Edward I, the ageing tyrant whose ambition drives Scotland to take up arms; Edward II, who faces more sinister enemies in his own court than on the battlefield; Edward III who seizes power from his mother's lover in a coup d'etat at the age of seventeen.

About the Author

Peter Traquair is a young historian who brings the era to life for a modern audience.
