Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungJack Cameron is a Scottish soldier commanding one of the Irish companies attached to the Jacobite army of Prince Charles Edward Stuart in 1746. A seemingly run of the mill mission to recover a wagonload of ammunition will see Jack, the likeable Franco-Irish regulars he commands and their brave highland comrades become embroiled in a dirty war against English soldiers and pro-government clans who are hell bent on seeing the last hopes of the House of Stuart extinguished once and for all. Cameron fights for King James, the Stuarts, for Scotland and for his beloved Mary. In a campaign that sees brother fight brother and Scot fight Scot, Jack Cameron must complete his own mission and return to the Jacobite army at Inverness in time to lead his men in the cataclysmic battle of Culloden. But before he can do that, he must overcome an enemy who knows him all too well...This enthralling, well-researched book also contains stunning original artwork and a handy in-depth glossary containing nearly everything you need to know about the Jacobite wars in Scotland and Ireland 1689-1746 and their complex background.It also exposes many of the myths and falsehoods attached to this important period in the history of the British Isles and pays particular attention to the military aspects of the risings, and Culloden in particular.
