During the latter half of the 18th century, more than 12,000 soldiers were recruited from the Scottish Highlands to fight for British imperial interests in North America, in the French and Indian War (or Seven Years’ War) and the War of American Independence. Reassessing the process of recruitment and the motivations of the Gaels who fought, this study analyses the British empire ‘from the perspective of the Scottish Highlands, rather than the other way round’.
