This is the first new book on the subject for 40 years. Author's last book, "Culloden", was critically acclaimed: 'Drawing extensively on first-hand accounts, paints a vivid picture of the campaign and battle' - "Scotland In Trust": The magazine of the National Trust for Scotland. It is highly illustrated with over 50 illustrations, 25 in colour.The Massacre of Glencoe occurred in Glen Coe, early in the morning of 13 February 1692, when Clan Campbell sided with the English king and murdered members of Clan Macdonald. The massacre began simultaneously in three settlements along the glen - Invercoe, Inverrigan, and Achacon - although the killing took place all over the glen as fleeing MacDonalds were pursued. Thirty-eight MacDonalds from the Clan MacDonald of Glencoe were killed by the guests who had accepted their hospitality, on the grounds that the MacDonalds had not been prompt in pledging allegiance to the new king, William of Orange. Another forty women and children died of exposure after their homes were burned.
