Rate this:
A history that ties together key events in the war, while also focusing in soldiers' equipment, clothing, tactics, and experiences. This history of the battles, marches, and sieges of the Scottish Covenanter Army and its one dragoon regiment, Colonel Hugh Fraser's dragoones, shows how they were instrumental in Parliament's victory in northern England and ultimately the defeat of King Charles I. The book looks at the victories of the Marquis of Montrose against Scots government troops, which led to a cavalry strike force, including Fraser's dragoones, returning from England to crush his army at Philiphaugh, ending his influence in the north. Finally, it traces the dissolution of Fraser's and other Scottish regiments, the mysterious death of Colonel Fraser at his home near Inverness, and the shift in the north towards Charles II, prior to the fate of the Scots' and royalists' causes being sealed at Dunbar and Worcester in 1650 and 1651. Alisdair McRae puts a controversial but powerful case for the primacy of the war in the north in the defeat of Charles I.
