Overview
-

Known to posterity as Scottorum Malleus – the Hammer of the Scots – Edward I was one of medieval England’s most formidable kings. This book offers a fresh interpretation of Edward’s military career, within the context of his Scottish wars. In part this is a study of personality: Edward was an extraordinary man. His struggles with tenacious opponents – including Robert the Bruce and William Wallace – have become the stuff of legend. But David Santiuste also considers the wider impact of Edward’s campaigns: he describes the effects on people at all levels of society, providing a compelling portrait of the British Isles at war.
