    Book details

This text, using contemporary memoirs, letters, newspapers and regimental order books, reconstructs the common man's version of the Moorland Battle and the repression and brutality that followed it for the highlanders. It challenges the rose-tinted legend of Bonnie Prince Charlie and Culloden.

    I have never been interested in history, but developed a fascination with the battle through reading Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series.This book answered all the questions I wanted to ask - such as the reasons as to why the dragoons would possibly want to do a job which involved presenting themselves as target practice for the other side - Did the Highlanders really approach the battle with enthusiasm for the cause - What was it like to live in a clan.This book is extremely readable, packed with fact and interest. I am looking at purchasing other books by the author.

    It was factual , but not overly dry.The History replay of these events kept me interest, and gave me a knowledge of theconditions, and brutality of the times that I did not realize. This has made me rethink a lot of History, I think it would bea great read for people of Scottish or Irish decent as they are very involved in each others History.
