Description - Lochiel of the '45 by John S. Gibson

This biography tells of Lochiel's life and casts new light on the motives and politics of the last Jacobite Rising. Using new material - including the "Memoire d'un Ecossais", an account written by Lochiel himself and recently discovered in the archives of the French Foreign Ministry - the work recalls how "Gentle" Donald Cameron of Lochiel was one of Bonnie Prince Charlie's most devoted Highland followers. Lochiel was at the heart of the Jacobite plot to restore him to the throne in 1745. He also played a major part in the Stuart prince's escape to France, but, unable to come to terms with the tragedy which had fallen on his people, Lochiel died shortly afterwards in 1748.
