Scotland's Second War of Independence, 1332-1357

Full-length study of the warfare between England and Scotland in the mid fourteenth century.
The Second Scottish War of Independence began in 1332, only four years after the previous conflict had ended. Fought once more for the continued freedom of Scotland from English conquest, the war also witnessed a revival of Scottish civil conflict as the Bruce-Balliol fight for the Scottish crown recommenced once more. Breaking out sporadically until peace was agreed in 1357, the Second Scottish War is a conflict that resides still in the shadow of that which preceded it: compared to the wars of William Wallace and Robert Bruce, Edward I and Edward II, this second phase of Anglo-Scottish warfare is neither well-known nor well-understood.

This book sets out to examine in detail the military campaigns of this period, to uncover the histories of those who fought in the war, and to analyse the behaviour of combatants from both sides during ongoing periods of both civil war and Anglo-Scottish conflict.It analyses contemporary records and literary evidence in order to reconstruct the history of this conflict and reconsiders current debates regarding: the capabilities of the Scottish military; the nature of contemporary combat; the ambitions and abilities of fourteenth-century military leaders; and the place of chivalry on the medieval battlefield.

Dr Iain A. MacInnes is a Lecturer and Programme Leader in Scottish History at the UHI Centre forHistory, University of the Highlands and Islands.

Bibliography
"A valuable modern study on a lesser known Scottish war with strengths in its accessibility and themes....[It] also serves more [This] engaging, clearly written and vigorously argued work [is] an invaluable and thought-provoking addition to the growing body of work on the Anglo-Scottish wars, providing an insightful perspective from the Scottish side." HISTORY
"general medieval military scholarship, making it of use to those studying medieval armies and their development and the conduct of knights and soldiers in war." SEHEPUNKTE
"MacInnes has brought the Second War of Scottish Independence out of historiographical limbo and restored it to its proper place not just in Scottish history but in the wider history of late medieval warfare- and at the same time placed those who fought in it firmly in the mainstream of European military society. This is very much to be welcomed." DE RE MILITARI
