Documenting the rise of Bonnie Prince Charlie

Acclaimed military historian Dr Christopher Duffy explains the importance of the events surrounding the ‘45 Rising, in Fight for a Throne.

In July 1745, Prince Charles and his tiny Jacobite army arrived in Scotland with little support; yet within five months they were able to lead a march to London, which made King George II fear for his throne.

This underdog tale has gripped the imagination of the nation for centuries and continues to do so today.

Fight for a Throne, by Dr Christopher Duffy, published by Helion and Company, £31.50.
