Title Details
Fatal Land by Dziennik, Matthew P.
Fatal Land: War, Empire, and the Highland Soldier in British America
by Dziennik, Matthew P.
 
In the second half of the 18th century more than 12,000 soldiers from the Highlands of Scotland were recruited to serve in Britain's colonies in the Americas. Dziennik corrects the mythologized image of the Highland soldier as a primitive if courageous relic of clanship, revealing instead how the Gaels used military service to further their own interests and, in doing so, transformed the most maligned region of the British Isles into an important center of the British Empire.
