The Story of Scotland’s Warrior Hero.
Wallace’s role in rescuing his country from conquest by England is well known, and yet what we know about him for a fact could be written on a postcard. This biography, while acknowledging this significant limitation, recreates his life by considering the context in detail. Likewise, the sort of man he was can be sympathetically imagined.
Set against the brutal background of the War of Independence, this thrilling retelling of Wallace’s story helps us sense the real man obscured by the mists of legend.
This is the companion volume to Robert the Bruce: Scotland’s King by the same author.
