Bannockburn
Peter Reese

5 1/3" x 8 1/4" • 223 pages
ISBN 9780862419158 • paperback • $16.95

Bannockburn is another riveting foray into Scottish history from the author of the bestselling titles Wallace and The Scottish Commander. The Battle of Bannockburn, at which Robert the Bruce's army vanquished Edward I, remains one of the most significant and ongoing sources of Scottish pride.

Reese begins with the military clashes during the initial stages of the Wars of Independence. After Bruce's revolt against Edward I, it follows his chain of military successes which led to the siege of the English garrison in Stirling Castle and brought about the great battle between both countries at Bannockburn.

The book considers the significance of the Scottish victory, primarily - but not exclusively - in light of their continued battlefield successes that compelled England to acknowledge Scotland's re-emergence as a sovereign power 14 years later.

Author of the bestselling Wallace and Bannockburn, Peter Reese is one of Britain’s finest military historians. Having retired from the army, he is now a full-time writer dividing his time between a home in Aldershot and Gairloch in Scotland.
