BATTLE OF THE BOYNE Together with an Account Based on French & Other Unpublished Records of the War in Ireland 1688-1691)

BATTLE OF THE BOYNE 
Together with an Account Based on French & Other Unpublished Records of the War in Ireland 1688-1691) 
Classic account of the Williamite war in Ireland, 1688-91, the formation of the Irish Brigade and its early history in French service during the Nine Years' War.
Of all the many battles fought in the British Isles, perhaps none has cast such a long shadow at the Battle of the Boyne - William of Orange's triumph over his father-in-law James II in Ireland in 1690. Celebrated by Ulster's Protestants with noisy parades on its July anniversary to this day, the Boyne was the decisive battle in the Williamite War in Ireland which lasted from 1688-91. This book would not find favour with those Protestant marchers since it is written from a strongly Jacobite viewpoint, and centres around the formation of the Irish Brigade who, after their departure from their native island, saw distinguished service as the ‘Wild Geese' mercenaries fighting for France. Based on mainly French sources, and illustrated by fine engravings this is a book that will interest all who are keen on the story of the Glorious Revolution and the Jacobites - whatever their political or religious leanings.
