Clans and chiefs by Ian Grimble( Book )

14 editions published between 1980 and 2000 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book remains the classic account of the origin of the clan among the Celtic people of Europe. It describes how the clan system was brought to Scotland, where it first enjoyed a new lease of life, and discusses its subsequent anachronism in a rapidly changing country. The relationship between a remote government and a society increasingly resistant to change was inevitably tense, and the final consequence of this was the brutal destruction of a whole social structure. Yet after this the clan system was revived as a model of romantic celebration and pride. Ian Grimble tells this extraordinary story both as a whole and through the history of its largest clan groupings - Gordons, Macgregors, Mackenzies, Stewarts, Macdonalds and Campbells"--Publisher

The Sea Wolf : the life of Admiral Cochrane by Ian Grimble( Book )

13 editions published between 1978 and 2001 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the biography of one of the most daring and brilliant naval commanders in British maritime history. Born in Fife in 1775, Thomas Cochrane first became a captain in the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars at the age of twenty-four, and his inspired tactics earned from Napoleon himself the epithet 'Le Loup de Mer' - 'The Sea Wolf'." "The Sea Wolf is a gripping account of the life and times of this extraordinary figure. This new edition also includes a substantial postscript by Charles Stephenson on Cochrane's 'secret war plan' - poison gas - formulated a century before it was first used on the battlefields of World War I."--Jacket

Castles of Scotland by Ian Grimble( Book )

5 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scotland's past is intricately bound up with her fine heritage of castles, and in this book Ian Grimble examines the architecture and history of twelve of the country's most splendid examples: Edinburgh, Stirling, Blair, Inveraray, Culzean, Glamis, Brodie, Craigievar, Fyvie, Thirlestane, Floors and Dunrobin. Taking us on a chronological journey from medieval times up to the present day, the author describes how each castle has grown or declined in prosperity and importance through the centuries - at different periods seats of kings, places of refuge, targets for invasion or simply monuments of wealth. These magnificent buildings are paid a fitting tribute in this authoritative and beautifully illustrated book, based on Ian Grimble's BBC television series
