Great Battles

Murray Pittock

Great Battles

  • The Great Battles Series. The story of the world's most important battles - how they were fought, how they have been commemorated, and the long historical shadows that they have cast
  • Culloden - one of the most significant battles in British history and the last pitched battle on British soil between regular armies
  • How and why it was fought - and its significance in the wider history of Great Britain, the Anglo-Scottish relationship, and the wider world
  • The story of how Culloden has been remembered in the centuries since it was fought - and the compelling but often misleading myths that have come to surround it
