The flight of Bonnie Prince Charlie by Hugh Douglas( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On July 1745 Prince Charles Edward Stuart, heir to the exiled Stuart dynasty, made landfall at Barra Head, the southernmost tip of the Outer Hebrides. For the 25-year-old prince, it was a day he had waited for all his life, and an historic moment, for it was the first time he had touched the soil of his native Scotland."--Jacket
In the footsteps of Robert Bruce by Alan Young( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'On 7 June 1329 died Robert Bruce, of goodly memory, the illustrious King of Scots, at Cardross (on the Clyde) in the twenty-fourth year of his reign. He was, beyond all living men of his day, a valiant knight' wrote a contemporary chronicler. Bruce's body was buried in Dumfermline Abbey, his heart removed to be taken on crusade to the Holy Land - at his dying request - but later returned to Scotland for burial, and interred at Melrose Abbey. Thus it is that for over 600 years. Robert Bruce has had a unique place in Scottish history, his position almost that of patron saint, and that the story of his life as hero king has held the minds of the champions of Scottish nationalism for generations." "Yet behind this legendary figure is a complex, and in many ways, more fascinating picture, a man who not only led his nation to a famous victory over the English at Bannockburn, and who is commemorated in his followers' national anthem 'Flower of Scotland', but who overcame great odds to win power for himself in Scotland and was determined to succeed in fulfilling his family's long-held ambition for political power. For before Robert Bruce could conquer the English, he had to fight his rivals, the Comyns and their associates, in a bloody, vicious and long-lasting civil war. Only then, after the killing of John 'the Red' Comyn, could Bruce put the long struggle against weakness and failure behind him, and begin the battle against Edward II that gave Scotland its independence.

For nearly 700 years debate has raged over the true nature of William Wallace and his role in Scotland's turbulent history. Was he the Braveheart of Blind Harry's legendary account, the bold, but savage, hero of the Scottish wars? Or, as some contemporary chroniclers attested, nothing but a villainous thief and vagrant fugitive? This book draws on a wide range of contemporary and modern sources to look behind the figure of legend to find Wallace's true character. Through superb photographs, we trace the journey of Wallace from his modest upbringing in south-west Scotland and his first victory

Wogan's Ireland : a tour around the country that made the man by Terry Wogan( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fully illustrated throughout with photos of stunning Irish scenery, Terry Wogan takes a revelatory tour back to his native Ireland in this gorgeous and thought provoking photographic journey In a magical mix of the personal and the political, the humorous and the tragic, the historic and the modern, this book photographically follows Terry Wogan on a return to his native land. Terry left Ireland in the late 1960s, after a childhood in Limerick dominated by the Catholic Church. Here, we see through Terry's eyes how the country has changed since then. He rediscovers its rugged coastline and the spectacular views he remembers from childhood holidays. He revisits old haunts, and hooks up with long-lost friends, colleagues, and fellow ex-pats, enjoying the nostalgia evoked by these experiences. But he doesn't shy away from the more complicated responses that led him to seek his fortunes elsewhere, as he also explains during the course of the book why he had to leave it all behind. The series will reflect the man himself: witty and urbane, relaxed yet engaging. But it will also reveal an unfamiliar Wogan—passionate, serious, investigative, and sometimes very emotional."--Publisher description
