A military history of Scotland

£70.00

Product description

Published by Edinburgh University Press 2012. Hardback book in good condition, the dust cover has a slight tear at the top, and the front page has been covered by labels to hide an inscription.



'Here truly is a magnificent book which does comprehensive justice to the Scottish military tradition over two millennia. No volume hitherto can equal its remarkable range, scholarly authority or deep insights. A veritable intellectual feast , it will stand for many years to come as the study on a subject which is absolutely central to the history of the Scottish nation.' T. M. Devine, Senior Research Professor in History, University of Edinburgh An unparalleled insight into the evolution of the Scottish military tradition over more than two millennia This wide-ranging and extensively illustrated volume traces the military history of Scotland from prehistory to the recent conflict in Afghanistan. Edited by three leading military historians and featuring contributions from thirty scholars, it explores the role of warfare in the emergence of a Scottish kingdom, the forging of a Scottish-British military identity, and the participation of Scots in Britain's imperial and world wars. Eschewing a narrow definition of military history, A Military History of Scotland also investigates the cultural and physical dimensions of Scotland's military past, such as Scottish military dress and music, the portrayal of the Scottish soldier in art and literature, Scotland's castles and battlefield archaeology, and Scotland's military monuments and museum collections.
