For all of you Pike and Shotte fans out there (and those curious about this colourful period!) we have a marvellous mountain of Montrose madness!
This week we received our initial shipment of ‘Famous by my Sword’. Written by Charles Singleton, and published as part of Helion & Company’s ‘Century of the Soldier’ series.
‘Famous by my Sword’ covers the army of Montrose and the military revolution – outlining the Armies of the Early 17th Century, the Military Revolution, with special features on the Highland Troops and Montrose’s Regulars – with specific attention brought to the battles of Tippermuir, Fyvie Castle, and Alford
As well as detailed write-ups on all of the above topics, the book is packed with gorgeous full-colour illustrations from Peter Dennis, battlefield maps, and colour photograph examples of reproduction uniforms and equipment from the era – giving a comprehensive account.
