This book is the story of Bonnie Prince Charlie's army at Culloden. Beginning with initial recruitment, it will strip away the myth and expose the realities of life in the Jacobite rebellion army, a force which included volunteers, 'pressed men', mercenaries and French forces, sent over to assist as part of the 'Auld Alliance'. Unit organization, weapons and tactics are discussed in depth, as well as the vicious battles that were fought to secure the crown. The wonderful colour plates and rare images illustrate the variety of uniforms that were worn ranging from tartan to regular army dress. This is an essential introductory guide to the Jacobite Armies as well as a definitive guide to the uniforms and weaponry of the period.
