Robert Bruce and the community of the realm of Scotland by G. W. S Barrow ( Book )
40 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the story of how Robert Bruce outwitted Edward I, the shrewd and ruthless King of England, defeated his son Edward II, and in doing so regained Scotland's independence. Professor Barrow describes the dazzling and tragic career of William Wallace, the English military occupation of Scotland that was its consequence, and the emergence of Robert Bruce as the centre of Scottish resistance. The author pieces together from the surviving evidence a vivid and almost day-by-day account of Bruce's daring tactics, his crowning at Scone in March 1306, his defeat by the English three months later, and his life as a fugitive while Edward hunted down such supporters as he could lay his hands on." "Bruce was by no means fighting only the English: Professor Barrow reveals the complex and fluid webs of alliance between the adherents to the Balliols and the English and how Bruce was able first to subdue his enemies in Scotland and then convert them to his cause."--BOOK JACKET
