NEW EBOOK - The Jacobite Wars - Battle of Prestonpans 1745 [Kindle Edition]

This book looks at the first large battle of the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion, and Bonnie Prince Charlie's first victory - The Battle of Prestonpans.

The battlefield lies just outside Edinburgh and is rewarding to visit. This book not only describes the course of the action, the reasons why the battle was fought and the weapons and tactics used - it also serves as a guide to the battlefield itself. The text is written in an open and lively style which explains clearly what was going on and why. The book is illustrated with a map of the battle, portraits of the people involved and illustrations of troops and weapons used. There is also a map to illustrate clearly what happened where.
