Product description

This book tells the amazing story of Stirling's history from earliest times to the modern day. Some of the most pivotal moments in Scottish history occurred in the city's surroundings, including the greatest military victory in Scottish memory. Exactly 700 years ago, an English army marched into Scotland intent on crushing Scottish resistance once and for all. The site they chose for their attack was Bannockburn - where the Scottish troops were waiting for them. One of King Edward's own knights captured the resolution of the Bruce's men: 'these men,' he said, 'will conquer or die.' And conquer they did, shattering the English army and harrying them all the way back to the border. But there is more to central Scotland's premier city than one battle: illustrated with 120 pictures and filled with curious, interesting and quirky facts throughout, this book will interest anyone who knows and loves this part of Scotland.
