Culloden changed the course of British history, not only by destroying the Highland clan system and ending all hope of the Stuarts reclaiming the throne, but by cementing Hanoverian rule and forming the bedrock for the creation of the British Empire. Following Culloden, a testing ground for revolutionary fighting techniques, the royal army expanded dramatically and began to fight campaigns overseas in America and India. Royle's lively and provocative history looks afresh at the period and unveils its true significance.
