BRANDER, Michael. The Scottish Highlanders and their Regiments. London : Seeley, Service & Co. Ltd., (1971). First Printing. Pp. (4),5-224, + 16 p. ofblack and white plates. Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth with gilt lettering t o spine. "The Scottish nation ceased to exist on 26 April, 1746, after a long and bloody persecution. That sad day saw the clan system broken for everas, tired, hungry, dispirited and ill-led, the great clans died before the muskets of Cumberland's army at Culloden. Yet had they but known the atroc ities that were to follow in the wake of the Army, they would cheerfully have turned again to the bayonets of the Redcoats. For forty-seven years after the battle the Highlanders suffered the indignities of a wandering race. Hanged for no reason, imprisoned and deported without trial, their music, weapons and dress forbidden on pain of death, the ancient culture crumbled and fell, and left the Highlands open for the tourist, the opportunist and the sheep. And yet, in the Highland regiments, we have a remarkable paradox,and the true proof of the effectiveness of the clan system. Bound on his s tainless honour to his regiment, the Highlander watched th destruction of his proud race by the barbarous and bigoted people he served, and yet continued to fight and die for causes not his own. Britain was the richer. As Michael Brander has so ably shown, it was in these same regiments that the Highland customs and manners survived, aided by few -- a very few -- compassionate and understanding people. And though the average tourist in Scotland may know of the Thin Red Line, and the Gordons' charge at Waterloo, and may have had a sticker in his car urging that the Argylls be saved, never let him stand by Rannoch and look down into Glencoe, and wonder why the glens are empty." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1. Formation; 2. Dress; 3. Recruiting; 4. Character and Discipline; 5. Religion and Sobriety; 6. Mutinies; 7. Pipes and Pipers; 8. Ships and Shipwrecks (pp. 95-105); 9.
