In August 1644, at the height of the First English Civil War (1642-1646), John Graham, the Marquis of Montrose, raised the standard of Royalist rebellion in Scotland. In a single year he won a string of remarkable victories with his army of Irish mercenaries and Highland clansmen. His victory at Auldearn, the centrepiece of his campaign, was won only after a day-long struggle and heavy casualties on both sides. This book details the remarkable sequence of victories at Tippermuir, Aberdeen, Inverlochy, Auldearn and Kilsyth that left Montrose briefly in the ascendant in Scotland. However, his decisive defeat and surrender at Philiphaugh finally crushed the Royalist cause in Scotland.

Scotland in the 17th century was an independent country whose king was the King of England. Charles proposed remodelling of the Scottish Kirk succeeded in alienating the Protestant population. In 1638 a National Covenant was signed throughout the country, opposing the King s reforms. In 1639 and 1640 two brief wars saw King Charles defeated and Scotland s independence re-asserted. However, one of the leaders, Montrose, was eclipsed by his rivals and in 1644 Montrose raised a Royalist rebellion. In the course of a year he won a string of victories that left him in momentary control of Scotland. The battle of Auldeam was the centrepiece of this campaign. This book details the remarkable Scottish campaign waged by the Marquis of Montrose. Seller Inventory # BTE9781841766799
