Stuart Reid in conversation with Dr Nicola Small
In a writing career of 30 years, Stuart Reid has produced popular military histories that span the mid-seventeenth to the early nineteenth century. A former soldier with a long military ancestry Stuart has written extensively on the Jacobite Risings. The Battle of Killiecrankie pitched Scot against Scot and saw the zenith of the Highland Charge. In his book, Stuart draws on detailed research to “challenge the myths and reveal the underlying truths” about a battle that was both a Jacobite victory and with the loss of one third of their men and Bonnie Dundee, the end of the 1689 rising.
In conversation with Dr Nicola Small, Stuartwill discuss this most dramatic of Scottish battles 330 years on and how following Killiecrankie the struggle would continue for another two generations.
