For three hundred years England and Scotland fought a bitter series of wars for territorial enlargement.
Border Fury provides a fascinating account of the period of Anglo-Scottish Border conflict from the Edwardian invasions of 1296 until the Union of the Crowns under James VI of Scotland, James I of England in 1603.
The book looks at developments in the art of war during the period, the key transition from medieval to renaissance warfare, the development of tactics, arms, armour and military logistics during the period. All the key personalities involved are profiled and the typology of each battle site is examined in detail with the author providing several new interpretations that differ radically from those that have previously been understood.
This is the first total overview of the long history of the Anglo-Scottish Border Wars and gives a valuable insight into why the legacy of these battles lives with us today in the current climate of Anglo-Scottish relations and the devolution debate.About the Author:
