The victory of Robert the Bruce over Edward II's army at the Battle of Bannockburn in June 1314 was a turning point in history - for the English as well as the Scots: a medieval battle that helped define the political landscape of Britain and became, for many Scots, a patriotic talisman. This landmark study gives a clear, even-handed and compelling account of Bannockburn, cutting through the myths that surround the battle and the Scottish leaders, the Bruce and Wallace.
