The Battle of St Monans: Scotland’s Forgotten Battle

Fife author Leonard Low investigates the forgotten battle of St Monans and explores the darker side of history in his latest book.

It was the 16th century when Henry VIII’s armies decided to travel to East Lothian to attack the Fife coast as part of their ‘rough wooing’ crusade.

Low comprehensively documents this historic period, unearthing the story of a Scottish victory that played out on the shores of St Monans and left over 900 Englishman dead.

The Battle of St Monans: The Story of Scotland’s Forgotten Battle by Leonard Low, published by Steve Savage, £9.95.
