The story of the last attempt to restore the Stuart dynasty to the British throne. In 1745, Charles Edward Stuart, known throughout as "Bonnie Prince Charlie", landed in Scotland, raised an army and marched to Derby, near London, before finally being destroyed in the last battle on English soil. This uprising has grown to legendary status and, while the romance and glamour of the battle have distorted the facts over the years, this book sets the record straight.
