    Bannockburn: The Battle For A Nation
    Alistair Moffat - Hardback - Birlinn
    Best-selling author Alistair Moffat offers fresh insights into one of the most famous battles in history. As 8000 Scottish solders, most of them spearmen, faced 18,000 English infantrymen, archers and mounted knights on the morning of Sunday 23 June 1314, many would have thought that the result waS a foregone conclusion. But after two days' fighting, the English were routed. Edward II fled to Dunbar and took ship for home, and only one English unit escaped from Scotland intact. The emphatic defeat of the much larger English force was the moment that enabled Scotland to remain independent and pursue a different destiny. This book follows the events of those two days that changed history.
