William Wallace by James A. Mackay

Book Description

Sir William Wallace of Ellerslie is one of history's greatest heroes, but also one of its greatest enigmas - a shadowy figure whose edges have been blurred by myth and legend. Even the date and place of his birth have been mis-stated - until now. James Mackay uses all his skills as a historical detective to produce this definitive biography, telling the incredible story of a man who, without wealth or noble birth, rose to become Guardian of Scotland. William Wallace, with superb generalship and tactical genius, led a country with no previous warlike tradition to triumph gloriously over the much larger, better-armed and better-trained English forces. Seven hundred years later, the heroism and betrayal, the valiant deeds and the dark atrocities, and the struggle of a small nation against a brutal and powerful empire, still create a compelling tale.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » One of Scotland's national heroes, Sir William Wallace of Ellerslie ('Braveheart') was neither wealthy nor of noble birth but he had the unique advantage of being both a tactical genius and an outstanding commander of men. He led a country with no previous warlike tradition to a spectacular and decisive victory over the better-armed and better-trained English army at the battle of Stirling Bridge (1297) and was rewarded with the office of Guardian of Scotland, only to be betrayed eventually to the English and executed in 1305. Mackay uncovers as much as we are ever likely to know about one of the most attractive characters in Scottish history. (Kirkus UK)
