One of the most celebrated moments in Scottish history, the Jacobite Rising of 1745 is often romanticised. Drawing on the work of historians and a wide range of contemporary sources, this book seeks to strip away some of the myths surrounding the Jacobites and the Highland army by looking at what they really wore, what they fought with, and what items they used to show their allegiance to the Prince and the Jacobite cause. Prince Charles Edward Stuart's army and the Jacobites are examined in detail from their clothes, weapons, and material culture.

This lavishly-illustrated book will appeal to anyone interested in the Jacobite Risings: reenactors, wargamers, fans of Outlander, and the Scottish diaspora who, thanks to a growing interest in family history, are keen to know more about their Scottish heritage.

“This book probably contains everything any wargamer could possibly want or need to know about the clothing and tartans worn by the Jacobite forces in the ’45.” Arthur Harman

  1. An interesting introduction to the clothing and weaponry of the Jacobite army in 1745/46. review by Rob on 15/10/2018

    An interesting introduction to the clothing and weaponry of the Jacobite army in 1745/46.

    The book covers the plaid in detail along with various aspects of highland and lowland dress.

  2. When I'm at my next '45 event, I'll certainly be looking at the Jacobites in a new light! review by King on 28/09/2018

    Over the last 10 and a bit years of being 1745 re-enactment (French-Irish), it's been clear that there is a lot of different contradictory ideas about how the 'Highland Army' was were dressed and equipped. This book addresses that, giving a clear, concise rundown and, importantly, the sources for the conclusions.

    If you are wanting to kit yourself up, or paint wargame models, this will be a good one-stop shop.
