Synopsis

The Highlands of Scotland, and more specifically the clans that inhabit them, have a romantic resonance and mystery. Fitzroy Maclean recounts their extraordinary history, from their Celtic origins to Robert the Bruce, the wars of independence and Bannockburn, from Flodden, Mary Queen of Scots to the Jacobite Risings of the eighteenth century, the nineteenth-century Clearances and the modern day. Highlanders sheds light on the motivation and character of the clans, bringing vividly to life their highly dramatic stories. Never before has there been such a thorough and well-balanced view of Highland history.

Author's Biography

Fitzroy Maclean was a Scottish diplomat, soldier, adventurer, politician and writer. During World War II he was posted to Yugoslavia as Churchill's personal representative and Commander of the Mission with Tito's partisans. He was awarded the Croix de Guerre (France), Order of Kutuzov (Russia) and Partisan Star (Yugoslavia). In 1993 he was created a Knight of the Thistle, Scotland's highest chivalric order. Eastern Approaches, the account of his experiences in Russia and Central Asia before the war, has sold more than a million copies in seven languages. His other books include a History of Scotland and a biography of Bonnie Prince Charlie.
