    1. If you are deeply interested in Scottish history and that must include Culloden than this is a book worth reading. The events, the people, the causes and the results are all discussed. There are pictures and comments included that are from the time of the battle. Well written.

    2. Having just visited the battlefield in Scotland, I found this book fascinating and provided all the information I could ever want about this important battle. Highly recommended.
