Auldearn 1645 by Stuart Reid

Book Description

Scotland in the 17th century was an independent country whose king was the King of England. Charles' proposed remodelling of the Scottish Kirk succeeded in alienating the Protestant population. In 1638 a National Covenant was signed throughout the country, opposing the King's reforms. In 1639 and 1640 two brief wars saw King Charles defeated and Scotland's independence re-asserted. However, one of the leaders, Montrose, was eclipsed by his rivals and in 1644 Montrose raised a Royalist rebellion. In the course of a year he won a string of victories that left him in momentary control of Scotland. The battle of Auldeam was the centrepiece of this campaign. This book details the remarkable Scottish campaign waged by the Marquis of Montrose.

Author Biography - Stuart Reid

Stuart Reid was born in Aberdeen in 1954 and is married with one son. He has worked as a librarian and a professional soldier and his main focus of interest lies in the 18th and 19th centuries. This interest stems from having ancestors who served in the British Army and the East India Company and who fought at Culloden, Bunker Hill and even in the Texas Revolution. His previous works for Osprey include the highly acclaimed titles about King George's Army 1740-93 (Men-at-Arms 285, 289 and 292) and the British Redcoat 1740-1815 (Warriors 19 and 20). Gerry Embleton has been a leading illustrator and researcher of historical costume since the 1970s, and has illustrated and written Osprey titles on a wide range of subjects over more than 20 years. He is an internationally respected authority on 15th and 18th century costumes in particular. He lives in Switzerland, where since 1988 he has also become well known for designing and creating life-size historical figures for museums.
