1690: Battle of the Boyne

Front Cover
Tempus, 2003 - History - 320 pages
A startling new history of the largest and most famous battle in Irish history, this book incorporates findings of a series of newly discovered sources. Was the Boyne really as important as William of Orange s propagandists claimed, or was it, as the losersthe French and many of the Irishinsisted, only a skirmish ? Padraig Lenihan reconciles the political potency of the Boyne with its military indecisiveness, challenging the conventional view of this most controversial event."
