Description

William Wallace of Elderslie, younger son of a country knight, came to fame through his active opposition to the aggressive imperialism of England s King Edward I. From political and social obscurity he seized control of the reins of government and became the first leader of his people in a war of liberation against a far larger and richer enemyEnglandthat would last for more than60 years. Historians have seen Wallace as a man of the common people, a man who built an army from the patriotic masses when the Scottish nobility sided with the English. In fact, Wallace was a member of the nobility himself and his army little removed from the ordinary military conventions of the day. Chris Brown cuts through the myths still perpetuated today to produce the first biography of Wallace driven by contemporary medieval records rather than Victorian legends to present an accurate portrait of the life and career of Scotland s greatest hero."
