Full Product Description
Five centuries on and the slaughter still occupies a core position in the Scottish nationalist debate and in the pantheon of heroic failures. This novel puts you in the heart of the action; you'll feel the sweat and the fear, the curtain of red mist.
The narrative covers the period April - September 1513, focusing around a handful of key characters:
- John Heron, Bastard of Ford, swaggering, violent and disreputable, the black sheep of a good English family
- Sir Thomas Howard, leader of the English forces, a skilled strategist
- Alexander, 3rd Lord Hume, leader of the Scots, bold but impetuous
- Isabella Hoppringle, Abbess of Coldstream, hub of a web of influential women throughout the Scottish borders, a woman of significant influence and charisma
John Sadler is a very experienced military historian, a fellow of the Royal Historical Society, and the author of more than two dozen books. He is a very experienced and much travelled battlefield tour guide covering most major conflicts in the UK, Europe and North Africa.
