For over 600 years, Robert the Bruce has had a unique place in Scottish history. Yet behind the legendary hero king is a complex, and in many ways, more fascinating picture. He was a man who not only led his nation to a famous victory over the English at Bannockburn, but who overcame great odds to win power for himself in Scotland and fulfil his family's long-held ambition for political power.This book, illustrated with superb colour and black and white photographs, takes the reader on Bruce's journey, from his birth in south-west Scotland to his kingship and triumph at Bannockburn. Here are the sites and settings associated with Robert the Bruce and those he fought.This is an essential travelling companion for a journey through Bruce's kingdom and to learn more about the myth and the man.
