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

 

"This little book is packed with information that helps to bring alive this crucial period of Scottish (and British) history, and the author has succeeded in enabling the reader to see beyond the myths and romance associated with the 'proud plaid'." Military History Monthly
