    DescriptionThe final demise of the Jacobite cause on Culloden Moor in April 1746 concluded one of the most famous battles in British military history. In this detailed modern account the author combines a thorough knowledge of 18th century tactics, an intimate knowledge of the battlefield itself and a scandalously underused archive of contemporary material to provide a balanced and accurate account of this controversial encounter. This book demonstrates that the British, and the Duke of Cumberland in particular, had a very pro-active role in the battle - not merely staving off defeat, but seizing victory with a series of well-timed and well-coordinated counterattacks.

Gerry Embleton has been a leading historical illustrator since the early 1970s specialising in the medieval period, but with a keen interest in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. An illustrator, and author, of a number of Osprey titles he has lived in Switzerland since the early 1980s.
