Inverness: Robert Carruthers & Sons, 1934. Publishers original dark blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Minor marks to front cover and light sunning to spine. White endpapers, Award Certificate from Inverness Royal Academy pasted to front endpaper. Frontis: Map of Scotland showing the Earldoms and Divisions of the land about 1300. iix-xciv 526pp including index, pages clean and bright in firm binding. First published in 1914, the Scottish War of Independence is a full-blooded account of the crucial phase in medieval Scotland's struggle against the superior might of England-from Balliol's repudiation of the English in 1295, to the Treaty of Northampton in 1328. Evan MacLeod Barron, who was himself a proud Highland Scot, celebrates the concepts of passionate nationalism and resistance to tyranny as he dramatically details all the important battles from Stirling Bridge to Bannockburn. He also pays tribute to the deeds of the Scottish leaders, especially the paragon of chivalry Andrew de Moray; the outlaw turned-patriot William Wallace; and the royal claimant Robert Bruce, whose stunning victories after overwhelming reverses won him mythic stature. The author shows that at the time of the war for independence the Scottish aristocracy was more Celtic in culture and Scottish popular feeling more nationalist than previously suspected. He also exonerates Robert Bruce from charges of treachery brought by hostile historians, revealing him to have been a brilliant warrior-statesman. This book is a mine of historical information and can also be appreciated as a series of war adventures told with an enthusiasm like that of the heroes who fill its pages.. Second Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 8vo.
