Britain's many battlefields bear witness to dramatic turning points in the country's history, and David Clark surveys more than 100 such sites in this entertaining and browsable guide, from a 1st-century Caledonian uprising against the Roman governor Agricola at Bennachie, not far from Aberdeen, to Culloden, only 70 miles away, where the last army battle in Britain was fought in 1746. The battles are grouped into sections like the Wars of the Roses, the English Civil Wars and the Jacobite Rebellions, and each entry includes a vivid description of the battle and its consequences, as well as precise details of the site and visitor information.
