Electronic Book Review:

This is a very readable narrative of a momentous episode in British history. Former studies of this topic concentrate upon events in Scotland, but England's war with Robert Bruce profoundly affected the whole of the British Isles. Scottish raiders struck deep into the heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire. Unable to resist, English communities bought off the Scots, and in This is a very readable narrative of a momentous episode in British history. Former studies of this topic concentrate upon events in Scotland, but England's war with Robert Bruce profoundly affected the whole of the British Isles. Scottish raiders struck deep into the heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire. Unable to resist, English communities bought off the Scots, and in this way a fifth of England came under tribute to the Scottish king. Edward Bruce was proclaimed King of Ireland and came close to subduing that country. The Isle of Man was captured, a Welsh sea-port raided. In the North Sea the Scots allied with German and Flemish pirates to cripple England's vital wool trade and disrupt her war effort. Both sides strove to employ Genoese galley fleets.
