9781781590126: The Hammer of the Scots: Edward I and the Scottish Wars of Independence

Known to posterity as Scottorum Malleus - the Hammer of the Scots - Edward I was one of medieval England's most formidable kings. This book offers a fresh interpretation of Edward's military career, with a particular focus on his Scottish wars. In part this is a study of personality: Edward was a remarkable man. His struggles with tenacious opponents - including Robert the Bruce and William Wallace - have become the stuff of legend. But David Santiuste also explores the wider context of Edward's Scottish campaigns. He describes the effects on people at all levels of society, providing a richly detailed portrait of the British Isles at war.

About the Author :

David Santiuste studied history at the University of St Andrews, where he was awarded a master's degree with distinction. His other publications include Edward IV and the Wars of the Roses, as well as various articles. He is the creator, with Rae Tan, of the website Reflections of the Yorkist Realm (yorkistrealm.com). David currently teaches history, on a part-time basis, at the Office of Lifelong Learning, University of Edinburgh.

Review :

"With an insight into not just the military capabilities of the opposing sides, but also the technology, tactics and logistics of fighting a war in an opponent's land, it reveals a great deal more than the general view of Edward I. A great addition for anyone interested in the lives of the early Plantagenet kings" (Skirmish: The Living History Magazine)

"An interesting look at the first phase of the Scottish Wars of Independence. Santiuste is showing the signs of an author getting into his stride with this his second book which flows well and is no task to finish" (Mark Runnacles Goodridge, Hexham Local History Society)

"... looks into exactly what made Edward tick, with a fascinating exploration of the king's personality" (Scottish Field)

Description du livre Pen Sword Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Known to posterity as Scottorum Malleus - the Hammer of the Scots - Edward I was one of medieval England s most formidable rulers. In this meticulously researched new history, David Santiuste offers a fresh interpretation of Edward s military career, with a particular focus on his Scottish wars. This is in part a study of personality: Edward was a remarkable man. His struggles with tenacious opponents - including Robert the Bruce and William Wallace - have become the stuff of legend. There is a clear and perceptive account of important military events, notably the Battle of Falkirk, but the narrative also encompasses the wider impact of Edward s campaigns. Edward attempted to mobilize resources - including men, money and supplies - on an unprecedented scale. His wars affected people at all levels of society, throughout the British Isles. David Santiuste builds up a vivid and convincing description of Edward s campaigns in Scotland, whilst also exploring the political background. Edward emerges as a man of great conviction, who sought to bend Scotland to his will, yet also, on occasion, as a surprisingly beleaguered figure.Edward is presented here as the central character in a turbulent world, as commander and king.
