Heir and magnate, shrewd politician, ‘king of summer’ then a desperate fugitive, Robert the Bruce fought with all his considerable ruthlessness, determination and vision to recover his throne, beat a superior invading force and secure Scotland’s independence. Colm McNamee combines the most up-to-date scholarship with lucid explanations and context to show Bruce’s enormous contribution to the history not just of Scotland, but that of England and Ireland. Now a major Netflix film, shot on location in Scotland and starring Chris Pine.
