Glencoe The Story of the Massacre

Glencoe The Story of the Massacre

By: John Prebble (author)eBook

Description

'You are hereby ordered to fall upon the rebels, the MacDonalds of Glencoe, and to put all to the sword under seventy.'

This was the treacherous and cold-blooded order ruthlessly carried out on 13 February 1692, when the Campbells slaughtered their hosts the MacDonalds at the Massacre of Glencoe. It was a bloody incident which had deep repercussions and was the beginning of the destruction of the Highlanders.

John Prebble�s masterly description of the terrible events at Glencoe was praised as �Evocative and powerful� in the Sunday Telegraph.
