9780748617906: A History of Clan Campbell, Vol. 3: From the Restoration to the Present Day

In the third and final volume of Alastair Campbell's acclaimed account of the Campbells the story resumes at a high pace. Successive incidents include the 9th Earl's part in the 1685 Rebellion and his eventual execution; the 10th Earl's raising to a Dukedom; the Massacre of Glencoe; the 2nd Duke's quashing of the 1715 Jacobite Rebellion at Sheriffmuir; the notable part played by the Clan in the 1745 Rebellion and in its aftermath the sorry tale of the Appin Murder.Following the defeat of the Jacobite armies at Culloden in1746 the old Clan system effectively came to an end. Succeeding chapters describe the break-up of the old order and the diaspora across the world together with details of the chiefly family and an account of the part played by the Clan in the British Army from its founding down to the war in Iraq. It is extraordinary to see how firmly the Campbells have left their imprint, how widely and in what a variety of ways. Appendices cover the heraldic history of Clan Campbell and the titles

Review:

Clearly organized, well written, and informative. Northern History Alastair Campbell of Airds' third and final volume of the history of Clan Campbell is - like its predecessors - a magnificent piece of work ! it is scholarly and yet also pitched at the general reader. It is detailed, but he never loses his grasp of the great sweep of national and international events. He has room for intriguing tidbits and humour. The Scots Magazine The third volume of a monumental work ! a fascinating story which closes, in this third volume, in the modern world. Clearly organized, well written, and informative.
