The story of how Robert Bruce outwitted Edward I, the shrewd and ruthless King of England, defeated his son Edward II, and in doing so regained Scotland's independence. Professor Barrow describes the dazzling and tragic career of William Wallace, the English military occupation of Scotland that was its consequence, and the emergence of Robert Bruce as the centre of Scottish resistance.

In this classic account of Robert Bruce's life and career, Professor Barrow describes the interplay and tension between Bruce and the concept of a Scottish nation of which Bruce aspired to be leader. He demonstrates the unity of purpose which linked the efforts of church leaders, nobles and free-holders throughout the period 1290 to 1329, as together they conducted a single-minded campaign to defend the freedom of the Scottish realm against English arms and armed onslaught.

G.S.W. Barrow's exhaustively researched book is the definitive biography of Robert the Bruce, who was King of Scots from 1306 until 1329. It is also the definitive history of the First Scottish War of Independence. And it just may be the best book you'll ever read on the rise of the concept of the "nation state" in Medieval Europe ... at least the "nation state" as defined by "the Community of the Realm of Scotland". Ronald McNair Scott's hagiography of Bruce may be more readable (and it is definitely worth a read), but this more academic work by Barrow is hardly dry, and provides much more depth. No study of Medieval Scotland (or Plantagenet England, for that matter) would be complete without reading this magnificent work.

This is a wonderful book - extremely informative and an absolute pleasure to read. A go to book on the period of the war of independence. Insightful and brilliant.

This is the best book for the study of this pivotal period in Scottish History. Barrow is the foremost scholar of the period and this book is a masterpiece. It covers the period from Alexander III's death in 1286 through to the death of Robert the Bruce in 1329, and is both detailed and also very readable. If you only buy one book on the period, this should be it!
