It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours, that we are fighting, but for freedom.’
Brutal and bloody, the Battle of Bannockburn in June 1314 was the most decisive victory in the Wars for Scottish Independence, and one that resonates with all Scots to this day.
With Bannockburn for Beginners, readers of all ages can learn about the build-up to the battle, who the key figures were and the tactics they employed. Just as importantly, they can learn about the aftermath and legacy of that historic encounter.
Clearly written and attractively illustrated, this book also contains lots of project suggestions for younger readers.
