Description - William Wallace by Robin Brown
William Wallace of Elderslie, younger son of a country knight, came to fame through his active opposition to the aggressive imperialism of England's King Edward I. This work cuts through the myths still perpetuated today to produce a biography of Wallace driven by contemporary medieval records rather than Victorian legends.
