FLODDEN 1513: Scotland's Greatest Defeat
On 9 September 1513 Flodden field was the site for one of Scotland's most famous battles, often termed their "greatest defeat". The Scottish Army led by their courageous king, James IV, was strong in artillery and trained in new tactics from the Swiss doctrine, whereas the English Army they faced still favoured traditional tactics. Despite the strength of the Scots the English men-at-arms fought ferociously and by nightfall the field was strewn with the bodies of the Scottish nobility, and the tragic figure of the dead James IV. This book examines the strategies of the opposing armies and the significant effect of the weapons, including longbow and artillery, which they deployed.
