From A Gordon Highlander in the Afghan War, painted by William Skeoch Cumming in 1881, to the Scottish Korean War Memorial, opened in 2000, this study of Scottish war art covers over a century of conflict while concentrating largely on the two world wars. The book is illustrated with over 200 works of art, including photographs, posters and monuments, and explores the contexts in which the artists undertook their work, whether on the home front or in theatres of war.
