However, this is the first truly comprehensive history of the Jacobites' last serious attempt to regain the throne for the Stuart dynasty. It is based on original research in all available archives, including Swedish, French and German records. These make nonsense of the many popular histories based on self-serving accounts written by a few of the key participants. But it is no dry academic analysis.
