Abstract:

"The Border Wars were crucial in determining the character of both the Scots and the English and the long-standing resentment over English attempts at domination, which still persist." "In this account of the three long and bloody centuries of warfare between England and Scotland, John Sadler transports the reader back to the events taking place to give a feel of what it was like to participate in combat at that time." "A general introduction sets the scene and provides a brief overview of Anglo-Scottish Border history from the end of the Roman Empire until the death of Alexander III of Scotland in 1286. Following chapters focus in detail on the involvement of Edward I of England and the 'Great Cause' and the careers of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce, King Robert I of Scotland. Warfare between the two countries became endemic under Edward III of England, and affected the whole economic structure of both the Northern counties of England and the Southern counties of Scotland. The book covers all the major campaigns and battles, and gives a detailed discussion of the terrain, commanders, weapons, tactics and outcomes in each case. This is all supported by existing primary and secondary sources together with the author's knowledge gleaned from walking the battlefields and his access to private collections of arms and armour. John Sadler conveys what it was actually like for those combatants engaged in the fighting, and demonstrates how the distinctive styles of defensive architecture developed on both sides of the border." "Border Fury provides a new history of the three centuries of near continuous warfare that moulded two of the most dynamic peoples in Europe."--BOOK JACKET.
