    DescriptionThe death of King Alexander III of Scotland and his only direct descendant Margaret, "Maid of Norway", triggered a succession crisis in Scotland. King Edward I of England was asked to arbitrate. This work covers how Edward's attempts to undermine Scottish independence led to Scottish unrest. In May 1297 William Wallace murdered the Sheriff of Lanark, sparking open revolt. Defeating the English at Stirling Bridge, Wallace led his men into battle with the returned Edward I at Falkirk on 22 July 1298. Amid accusations of treachery, Wallace's spearmen were practically annihilated, leading to Wallace's execution and a re-establishment of Scottish control by Edward and his men.

    Pete Armstrong went to Keswick School after which he travelled widely before taking a degree in Fine Art at Maidstone College of Art. He was an art teacher in Kendal in Cumbria for several years but escaped and is now among other things the sculptor behind Border Miniatures, specialising in producing military miniatures from the medieval period. In the course of his model making, Pete has amassed a wealth of research material and his writing is the fruit of these labours. Pete has previously written 'Ancient and Medieval Modelling' in the Masterclass Series and Campaign 101: 'Bannockbum 1314'. Graham Turner is a leading historical artist, specialising in the medieval period. He has illustrated numerous titles for Osprey, covering a wide variety of subjects from the dress of the 10th-century armies of the Caliphates, through the action of bloody medieval battles, to the daily life of the British Redcoat of the late 18th century. The son of the illustrator Michael Turner, Graham lives and works in Buckinghamshire, UK.
