A fair description of the battles can be found here in this volume, but I myself would of liked to have more details of the battle and the personalities (beyond the top eschalon). The big picture maps are good and the battle maps seemed to lack a bit to me but maybe I am nitpicking. I would of definitely liked to have seen more coat of arms perhaps as an index of those who fought simply because heraldry is really a big part of the history of the people who fought in the battles but only a handful of them appear through the work. Most of the photos are landscape shots and although they are interesting could of been used to show more pertinent pictures. ( )

The death of the last of the Scottish royal house of Canmore in 1290 triggered a succession crisis. Attempts to undermine Scottish independence by King Edward I of England sparked open rebellion culminating in an English defeat at the hands of William Wallace at Stirling Bridge in 1297. Edward gathered an army, marched north and at Falkirk on 22 July 1298 he brought Wallace's army to battle. Amid accusations of treachery, Wallace's spearmen were slaughtered by Edward's longbowmen, then charged by the English cavalry and almost annihilated. In 1305 Wallace was captured and executed, but the flame of rebellion he had ignited could not be extinguished. In this book, David Nicolle reveals the true story behind the 'Braveheart' myth.
