Edward of Caernarfon is best known today for his disastrous military defeat in 1314 at Bannockburn, where his English army was defeated by a vastly inferior Scottish force led by Robert the Bruce, leading to Scottish Independence. This catastrophe was one of many in a disastrous career marked by indolence, vengefulness, vacillation in relationships with France, deranged policies at home, and constitutional wrangling, ultimately brought to an end by a minor insurgency led by his vindictive wife and her paramour, a disaffected baron.

Review:

"This is a magisterial work, drawing on the fruits of a lifetime of study and writing about late-medieval English history. Haines joins an illustrious group of students in turning his attention to this pivotal period. He has mastered the previous literature and offers balanced criticism and fresh observations on all the relevant events. Because of the work's comprehensiveness, and because of the author's thoughtful and balanced judgements, this study should stand for some time as the standard narrative account of that reign."

"A significant contribution to research. Haines does a good deal to both amplify and bring together modern scholarship on the period. This is a very detailed study, based on formidable scholarship."

"A fascinating quarry of material - Haines offers both judgment and constant evenhandedness." BBC History "This book is a labour of love, the culmination of Haines' long and distinguished career as an historian of the fourteenth century. As such, it a superbly crafted work, painstakingly researched and beautifully written." Histoire Social / Social History "A narrative that integrates the work of several generations of scholars has long been needed: Haines' work should prove to be more than the starting point for a new generation." Canadian Journal of History
