Description


The iconic figure of Robert the Bruce has gone down through the centuries as one of the most remarkable leaders of all time. With equal parts tenacity and ruthlessness, he had himself crowned King of Scotland after murdering one of his most powerful rivals, and so began the rule of an indomitable military genius unafraid of breaking convention, and more than a few English heads. Indeed, it was under King Robert that the Battle of Bannockburn took place—a famous Scottish victory snatched by a tiny Scots force against a large, supposedly more sophisticated English foe. Here Chris Brown explores the life of Robert the Bruce, whose remarkable history has combined with legend, and brings to the fore the real story of the outlaw
