This new book provides a very readable study of the last Jacobite Rebellion and a guide for those wishing to visit the field of combat. - Most Highly Recommended Books that run to three editions are usually very deserving of the printer's time. Publishers usually hope to have sales to justify at least one reprint but very few books justify that. This is an example of a well-written book that transports the reader to a place and time of importance. There is much romantic legend woven around the Jacobite Rebellions which achieved so little for all of the pain and death they brought. The final act was a time of sorrow and the passing of an age towards the confirmation of the United Kingdom and the road to democracy. Culloden Moor saw the foundering of Jacobite hopes in a bloody battle that ended with the victors pursuing those survivors leaving the field. They hunted them down and very few escaped. The author has addressed the battle in detail which is a rare approach, most historians concentrating on the state of the campaign and the personality of Prince Charlie. There is supporting illustration carried through the body of the book with the information to assist those who visit the battlefield to see for themselves the context of the engagement.
