"This is the first modern biography of James Graham, Marquis of Montrose. One of th most famous and dashing figures in Scottish history, his heroic struggle in the face of hopeless odds still excites the imagination. For three years Montrose was in thevanguard of the fight against Catholicism and Stuart despotism. Yet during this time, extremists among the Covenanters became ever more influential a nd Montrose, sickened by their excesses, defected to the King. Under Charles I he enjoyed his 'glorious year' of dazzling victories, routing the rebels in a series of battles. But his dramatic success was shortlived, and in quick succession he was defeated, exiled and finally betrayed. Montrose was hanged in 1650, yet his legendary victories remain to this day one of the most astonishing military episodes in British history." - from the rear cover. Minor cover creasing, else vg.
