Focusing almost entirely on military matters, Chris Brown outlines the history of the Second Scottish Wars where Edward III undertook a more aggressive policy towards the Scottish once the final payments of the treaty of 1328 had been received. These were wars of `romantic tournaments in grand castles', a world of chivalry and new tactics of campaigning which attracted knights from across Europe. Brown examines the composition of the army, how it was financed, the major players, the arms and armour, the battle plans, especially at the siege of Berwick and the Battles of Halidon Hill and Neville's Cross, and how they were enacted and the political and social implications on both sides.
