This illustrated guide, now reprinted once more, presents sixty-nine battle sites, describing each battle and what can be seen there today'. Presented chronologically, the battles have been extracted from almost a thousand years of military history, beginning with the Battle of Ashdown in 871 and ending at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. The majority of the battles, not surprisingly, results from the Wars of the Roses, the English Civil War and wars between England and Scotland. Each is described, accompanied by a photograph of the site today and a battle plan. Kinross also gives travel directions and highlights sites and buildings that survive from the time of the battle.
