About this Book
On an April afternoon in 1746 the Jacobite cause died amid a torrent of artillery and musket fire on a windswept Cullonden Moor. The '45 Rebellion was the last and greatest of the exiled Stuart family's attempts to win back the English crown and Prince Charles Edward Stuart, 'Bonnie Prince Charlie', came close to success. Despite two stunning victories over government troops and an epic march into England the doomed rebellion came to a bloody and cataclysmic end at the hands of the Redcoats under the Duke of Cumberland - 'the Butcher'.
