In this sweeping history, Trevor Royle details one of the bloodiest episodes in British history. The prize was the crown of England, and the players were the rival houses of Lancaster and York. The dynastic quarrel threatened the collapse of the monarchy as a succession of weak rulers failed to deal with an overzealous aristocracy, plunging England into a series of violent encounters. The bloody battles and political intrigue between the rival heirs of King Edward III brought forth one of the most dynamic ruling families of England--the Tudors

Culloden : Scotland's last battle and the forging of the British Empire by Trevor Royle( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A vigorous, authoritative history of the last major battle fought between Scottish and English forces, resulting in the formation of the bedrock of the British Empire. The Battle of Culloden in 1746 has gone down in history as the last major battle fought on British soil: a vicious confrontation between the English Royal Army and the Scottish forces supporting the Stuart claim to the throne. But this wasn't just a conflict between the Scots and the English: the battle was also part of a much larger campaign to protect the British Isles from the growing threat of a French invasion. In Trevor Royle's vivid and evocative narrative, we are drawn into the ranks, on both sides, alongside doomed Jacobites fighting fellow Scots dressed in the red coats of the Duke of Cumberland's Royal Army. And we meet the Duke himself, a skilled warrior who would gain notoriety because of the reprisals on Highland clans in the battle's aftermath. Royle also takes us beyond the battle as the Royal Army, galvanized by its success at Culloden, expands dramatically and start to fight campaigns overseas in America and India in order to secure British interests. Culloden changed the course of British history--by ending all hope of the Stuarts reclaiming the throne and cementing Hanoverian rule to form the bedrock for the creation of the British Empire. Royle's lively and provocative history looks afresh at the period and unveils its true significance, not only as the end of a struggle for the throne but the beginning of a new global power."--Dust jacket

Precipitous city : the story of literary Edinburgh by Trevor Royle( Book )

7 editions published in 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful of the world's cities, a place of splendor whose craggy skyline brings together two entirely different worlds. To the south of its main thoroughfare, Princes Street, the Castle with the towering medieval tenements and spires of the old town within its protection; to the north, the cool elegance of Georgian architecture blessed by the Smile of Reason: it is a city of bewildering contrasts. It was with good reason that Edinburgh's writers proclaimed their native city with wit and gusto. Robert Burns addressed it heroically as "Scotia's Darling Seat," Sir Walter Scott, with his eye fixed firmly on the glorious past, held it for ever as his "own romantic town" and Robert Louis Stevenson, his mind sharpened by the pain of exile, called it, aptly enough, his "precipitous city."--Jacket flap

Patton : old blood and guts by Trevor Royle( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"General George Smith Patton was a man of extremes, nicknamed 'Old Blood and Guts' in deference to his strong physical constitution, his obvious love of warfare and combat, his relentless self-promotion and his soldierly abilities. He came to the fore in the fighting in North Africa and Sicily in 1942 and 1943 as a tough and inspirational field commander who drove his army as relentlessly as he did himself. Arrogant, vainglorious and unpopular with his fellow generals, he was nevertheless one of the great land force commanders of the Second World War. In the breakout from Normandy in 1944 Patton proved to be the one Allied general who had mastered the art of blitzkrieg warfare and in post-war interviews senior German commanders revealed that he was their most feared opponent." "Patton inspired an unswerving loyalty in his men, perhaps difficult to understand in the light of his treatment of them, which was often bullying and sometimes cruel. However, when the raw and untested US soldiers came to face the much-feared German panzer divisions in North Africa, he gave his men the self-belief to take them on. He refused to allow his army to think that they were second best."--BOOK JACKET

A time of tyrants : Scotland and the Second World War by Trevor Royle( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book acclaimed military historian Trevor Royle examines Scotland's role in the Second World War from a wide range of perspectives. Throughout the conflict the country's geographical position gave it great strategic importance for importing war matériel and reinforcements, for conducting naval and aerial operations against the enemy and for training regular and specialist SOE and commando forces. Scotland also became a social melting pot with the arrival of Polish and numerous European refugees, whose presence added to the communal mix and assisted post-war reconstruction. The role played by women was also essential to the war effort: for the first time they were conscripted and worked on the land, in forests and in munitions factories such as the huge Rolls-Royce complex at Hillington. In addition to the important military aspects--the exploits of the Army's renowned 15th Scottish, 51st Highland and 52nd Lowland Divisions in Europe and North Africa and the role played by the RAF and the Royal Navy from Scottish bases, for example--Scotland was also vital as an industrial powerhouse and acted as the nation's larder. Culture, too, flourished, with a new generation of poets supporting Hugh MacDiarmid's Scottish Renaissance movement, which promoted the aims of Scots as a literary language. At the end of the war the new sense of internationalism encouraged the creation of the Edinburgh International Festival, which encapsulated the optimism that a brave new world was emerging. The war had a huge impact on politics, with national centralization achieved through the Scottish Office and the Scottish Grand Committee under the able guidance of Secretary of State Tom Johnston, who launched numerous initiatives to help the war effort and to create jobs. With the emergence of the post-war Labour government and the welfare state, nationalism went into decline and the dominance of socialism, especially in the west, paved the way for the command politics which dominated Scotland for the rest of the century. Based on previously unseen archives in the National Archives of Scotland, A Time of Tyrants is the first comprehensive history of the unique part played by Scotland and the Scots in the global war to defeat Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. -- Inside jacket flaps
