    Book details


In August 1745 Charles Edward Stuart, the 'Young Pretender', landed in Scotland and sparked the Second Jacobite Rising. The Jacobite forces seized Perth, then Edinburgh, where they proclaimed the Young Pretender's father King James VIII; they trounced their Hanoverian opponents at Prestonpans and crossed into England, getting as far south as Derby before withdrawing into Scotland. Far from universally popular north of the border, the Jacobite army bested another Hanoverian army at Falkirk and besieged Stirling, only to be routed by the Duke of Cumberland's army at Culloden in April 1746, a crushing defeat that ended any prospect of a Stuart restoration. Featuring full-colour artwork depicting the distinctive uniforms of Cumberland's men, this exhaustively researched study offers a wealth of detail of regimental strengths and casualties and includes an extended chronology that places individual units in specific places throughout the campaign that culminated at Culloden.

I have no hesitation in recommending this volume. --Military Modelcraft International

    A good solid Osprey on some of the Government and allied soldiers involved in the '45....but....... my gripe is that it is mainly concerned with the allies, auxiliaries, Dutch and Hessians who were not part of the army at Culloden, despite the attention grabbing title. From memory there is a plate with a private of the 1st and 4th Foot who could qualify as being there. The majority of the others weren't within a 'country mile' of the place so the title is disingenuous to say the least. Anyone wanting info on the Government Forces at Culloden would do better to get the volume offered by Partizan Press.

    Once again Stuart Reid has produced an excellent book on Scottish/British history. It fits well with the other titles by him in the Osprey seies on the Jacobite period.

    I read this for research purposes. Some useful information and plenty of illustrations but most of them he has made available elsewhere.
