Concise accounting of a day that changed lives
Excellent account of the Battle of Stirling Bridge. Wonderfully retold, filled with excellent details, this is an great way to read about days that changed the history of the world. Told without choosing a side, the authors describes the battle with as much detail as possible. He captures the entire day, from the light bouncing off their helmets, to the mounting feelings of the participants, from soldier to key player. He describes the battle in vivid detail and gives the reasons for its importance. Great way to really capture the feeling of the day. I hope he does other special events that changed the shape of the world.
