Summary

Explore la fascinante vida de William Wallace

Puede reconocerlo por la película de Mel Gibson, Braveheart...

Sir William Wallace (1270-1305) era - y es - un icono nacional escocés de máxima importancia. Nacido como el hijo más joven y sin tierras de un hombre de baja nobleza (Sir Malcolm Wallace), su sorprendente ascenso para convertirse en una leyenda militar e histórica, un patriota ejemplar y un héroe nacional, es una representación de la narrativa más desfavorecida con la que muchas personas se identifican en el cine y la vida real.

Wallace se ganó un lugar en la historia por sus exitosos esfuerzos para liderar a las fuerzas de la resistencia escocesa que se unieron en contra el dominio inglés desde que Escocia fue conquistada en 1296.

Algunos de los temas que se tratan en este libro incluyen:
 

  • Orígenes misteriosos
  • La mayoría de edad en crisis
  • Desafío y cumplimiento

  • Invadiendo Inglaterra
  • El Guardián de Escocia

A book full of surprises.

Once you read the reasons for the rebellion you feel the importance of his que and his unselfish devotion to the people of his country. A Great listening which you will not be able to put down.

Not a bad effort.

When I read a book about so exciting a figure as William Wallace, I do not want to know where Blind Harry went wrong and a competing source was a tad better. I want to know why the peerage of Scotland was so fickle, why Edward I had such a thing about crushing the Scots and Wallace in particular, and why -- after Falkirk -- Edward was so ineffectual in conquering Scotland.

Missed Opportunities as I know about him.

The story of William Wallace is based on a very few sources of widely varying credibility. When one is faced with such a situation, there are two courses of action possible. Ronald Williams facing an even greater dearth in his excellent LORD OF THE ISLES compensated by filling in the background so that the resulting read was a much richer experience. Unfortunately, the author seemed to spend over half the time dealing with inconsistencies of his sources. This makes for great scholarly debates -- but I think it should be relegated to the footnotes.

Definitely Need this to learn about William Wallac

I actually obtained this as a gift from the publisher. A few pages into the book, and I knew I needed my own copy to keep. This book is well-researched and contains information about early Scotland I need for my own research. Would highly recommend it.

Not appreciated one....

My first audible here and not appreciated one. This audible will get better toward the end, but it is too late. The result is a book without a taut story line and almost no integrated themes. Maybe this is OK for a conference of professional historians or as the syllabus for a semester-long college course. But as historical biography for us amateurs, it falls short of the good ones.

An history, needed to know.

I love history books, and being an British I must know how the Scottish get rid of Great Briton many years ago. The author did a fantastic job to describe the era.

I admire the willingness of the author.

The account is well written and, in parts gripping. I would give the book 5 stars but as it is the first and only book I have read on the subject I have nothing with which to compare it.

The Love of a Book!

Gift for my son from the publisher. He is in love with William Wallace and his efforts. He loves this book as it includes the name of one of our ancestors and the fact that we are Scottish.

Richly details history of Wallace and his rising.

The author gives a richly details account of the Scottish clime of politics that formed and fermented Wallace. It might be a little bit more than the average reader would be interested in, but for those wishing to know more without wading through Blind Harry, this is a wonderful work.

This gets better toward the end.


Despite impressive historical research, the author too often pays more attention to describing his sources than to telling his story. Time and time again, the author cannot resist remarking upon his footnoted authorities, calibrating their weight, delighting in the discovery of inconsistencies, and refereeing contesting interpretations among historians.

Scotlands problems against England.

The Captivating History author team, an acquaintance of mine, has done a masterful job on William Wallace's life and contribution to the Scottish Nation. Well worth the book.
