John Prebble - Glencoe (2nd Hand Paperback)
"You are hereby ordered to fall upon the rebels, the MacDonald's of Glencoe, and to put all to the sword under seventy"
In the terrible aftermath of the moorland battle of Culloden, the Highlanders suffered at the hands of their own clan chiefs.
This was the treacherous and cold-blooded order ruthlessly carried out on 13 February 1692, when the Campbells slaughtered their hosts the MacDonald's at the Massacre of Glencoe.
It was a bloody incident which had deep repercussions and was the beginning of the destruction of the Highlanders.

'Mr Prebble tells a terrible story excellently.' - The Times.
"Prebble's Glencoe, already half a century old and rarely out of print, is narrative history at its best. It tells the story of a late seventeenth century war crime and it carefully apportions blame on the evidence and without prejudice." - Goodreads Review.
John Edward Curtis Prebble, FRSL, OBE, was an English journalist, novelist, documentarian and popular historian. He is best known for his studies of Scottish history.
