Otterburn 1388 by Peter Armstrong

Book Description

In his "Chronicles", Froissart described Otterburn as the best fought and the most severe battle of his time. Fought at Redesdale, in Northumberland, in August 1388, the battle originated from the ongoing war between the Scots and the English but rapidly descended into a personal feud between the Scottish clan, Douglas, and the aristocratic English family, Percy. This book details the events that led up to this clash on the borders, using all the contemporary sources, gives a full account of the battle and examines the opposing armies motivations, training and weaponry, as well as the personalities of Black Douglas and Henry 'Hotspur' Percy.
