Synopsis

The history of war and conquest usually resounds to the noise of battle: exciting, certainly, but ultimately misleading. War truly begins when the invading army, conquest complete, goes home. Nowhere is this more convincingly demonstrated than in the attempted annexation of Scotland by Edward I of England. Already the successful conqueror of Wales, why did his attempts to annex Scotland, an enemy he regarded as so inferior, fail? Fiona Watson examines the process of conquest and attempted colonisation of one medieval kingdom by another, showing how Scotland was able to marshal its resources and create a coherent and cohesive national front to deal with a more powerful enemy.
