The Wallace - Nigel Tranter

This is historical fiction, but not really of the romantic sort. Tranter here has produced a fictionalised account of the life of William Wallace, and the political and military happenings and accomplishments of his time.

He is a remarkable character, pretty much forcing The Bruce into an alliance by strength of character, at least here.

Reasonably scathing of the usual layabout nobility, in general.

3 out of 5
