With map end-papers. A reprint of the 1913 Maclehose edition The Battle of Bannockburn (24 June 1314)was a significant Scottish victory in the First War of Scottish Independen ce, and a landmark in Scottish history. "This work, first published in 1913, represents a radical re-assessment of the tactics employed by the Englishand Scottish Armies at Bannockburn. W. M. Mackenzie had made a long and de tailed study of the literature from the fourteenth century relating to the Battle of Bannockburn and many of the ideas in this book formed part of a paper which he read to the Glasgow Archaeological Society in 1910. "The Battle of Bannockburn" approaches what the author saw as the various military and historical problems of the battle in a manner which is both clear and compact. Mackenzie's account shows that the two day Battie of Bannockburn wasan even more remarkable and signjficant event that [i.e. than] had previou sly been suggested and it raises the generalship of Bruce to a conspicuous height in medieval warfare." - from the dj. 1.
