Format: Hardcover
Bannockburn by John Sadler proves to be a well written account of the Scot-English War between 1296 to 1328. This is not a book specifically written on Bannockburn even although the battle does take up 32 pages. It is just one of several battles discussed in this relatively short book geared toward beginner level. The book traces the history this conflict from Edward I's ambitious plan to unite the two kingdom to Robert Bruce's successes against the English at Bannockburn and there after. The book also starred William Wallace during the first part. The author drew the proper conclusion from this battle and unlike so many, did not stir wrongfully into revisionist thoughts that so many current authors like to do on this battle just to be different.

While the written narrative of the book is quite good, I have to say that there are several reasons why this book only got 3 stars. First is that this book is definitely NOT worth the price Amazon or any booksellers are asking for. The book is printed and sold in Britain for 19.95 pounds as stated inside the cover. That translates to $40 American. That is highway robbery for a book of this level of scholarship. Second, there are 8 pages of photographs, all black and white and not well taken. Third, the maps in this book is really pretty lame. Its too lack details, in black and white and bit on the vague side.

There are five appendixes at the end of the book but they proves to be rather underwritten. Couple of them were on order of the battle where I doubt if the author actually did real research in breaking them down. Another was on the Knight Templars and questioned if they were involved in the battle.(They were not and why would they??
