Product Description:

Throughout history, the Scottish warrior has been armed with some of the most famous and instantly recognizable weapons and armour ever produced. From the majestic Highland two-handed sword to the diminutive sgian dhu that tucks into the sock of every Scotsman in formal dress, to the distinctive leather shield or targe, these objects are redolent of great men and hard-fought battles such men as William Wallace, Robert the Bruce and Bonnie Prince Charlie and such battles as Stirling Bridge, Bannockburn, Flodden and Culloden. An important aspect of national heritage and folklore, Scottish weapons and armour are icons of valour and pride for millions worldwide. With a foreword by the Chief of the Clan Macnab, this pioneering study by Fergus Cannan examines the Scottish people at war and the armour and weaponry they have used on the battlefield from the Stone Age to the present day.   "In this book, Fergus Cannan has provided us with a considered, critical study of the physical military heritage of both Highland and Lowland Scots, who as soldiers have had an impact in wars across the globe out of all proportion to the small size of their country. To all those with an interest in Scottish history I commend this book" - FROM THE BOOK'S FOREWORD BY JAMES CHARLES MACNAB OF MACNAB, 23RD CHIEF OF CLAN MACNAB
