Product Description

Publisher: Birlinn

Author: Andrew Fisher

William Wallace has always been one of the legendary figures of Scottish history. Unlike previous biographies, which have tended to present Wallace as a one-dimensional figure, this new and substantially expanded edition of Andrew Fisher’s classic book investigates all aspects of Wallace’s life and character, treating him as a man of his time. In an age of brutality, Wallace too was brutal: he repaid the sack of Berwick with the harrying of Northumberland, and the crimes with which he was charged in 1305 were by no means wholly fabricated.
