Description
Scotland has had an uniquely important military history over the last five centuries. Conflict with England in the sixteenth century, Jacobite rebellions in the eighteenth, twentieth-century defences and the two world wars, as well as the Cold War, all resulted in significant cartographic activity. In this book two map experts explore the extraordinarily rich legacy of Scottish military mapping, including fortification plans, reconnaissance mapping, battle plans, plans of military roads and routeways, tactical maps, plans of mines, enemy maps showing targets, as well as plans showing the construction of defences. Most are visually striking and attractive.
