Colonial American historian Ian Macpherson McCulloch uses rare sources to bring to life the stirring story of the three Scottish Highland regiments that operated in North America during the French-Indian War (1754-1763). Forbidden to carry arms or wear the kilt unless they served the British King, many former Jacobite rebels joined the new Highland regiments raised in North America. Involved in some of the most bloody and desperate battles fought on the North American continent, Highlanders successfully transformed their image from enemies of the crown to Imperial heroes. The author pays particular attention to the part they played at Ticonderoga, Sillery, Bushy Run and on the Plains of Abraham, Quebec.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Overall another superlative Osprey book and one that is both an interesting and enjoyable read. I'm sure you will agree." --Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (January 2008)

"Ian MacPherson's McCulloch's Highlander in the French-Indian War 1756-67 joins the 'Warrior' series in focusing on the daily lives of the fighting men of the times, and comes from a Colonial American historian who uses rare resources and color art to capture the story of three Scottish Highland regiments that operated in North America even though forbidden to wear the kilt or carry arms." --California Bookwatch (April 2008)
