Description - The Jacobites by Antony Kamm

This is a new edition of this best-selling "Scottie", recast and rewritten for readers of 10 upwards. The aims of the Jacobites and the background to the risings of Viscount Dundee (1689), the Earl of Mar (1715), and Charles Edward Stuart (1745) are explained, and this colourful but bloody period in Scotland's past brought vividly to life. The telling is illuminated by extracts from original documents, genealogical chart of the royal families of Scotland and England, and maps and battle plans. Illustrated in full colour with drawings, and with portraits, prints, and objects from National Museums Scotland and other national collections, this work includes an additional 8-page section in black and white that includes Jacobite songs and story-poems, a Jacobite quiz, and the original Rob Roy board game.
