After the forfeiture of the Lordship of the Isles, these two mighty families emerged as prominent amongst all who sought to fill the power vacuum in the West. The author shows how their differing strategies led inexorably to that fatal confrontation, wherein Gaeldom, Catholicism and the King were eventually overwhelmed by Calvinism and bloody revolution. The author carefully sets the stage and then, drawing upon extensive personal research, sweeps through the saga of Montrose's campaign with a vigour and passion that is as infectious as it is stimulating. The detailed topographical references will be of special value to those who seek to retrace the physical course of events.
