(From the publisher):
Once again Scotland was fighting for her survival as a free and independent nation.
Robert the Bruce's legacy, three years after his death in 1329, was in danger. With a five-year-old heir guarded by an ageing and diminishing band of lieutenants, the English king, Edward III, had seen his opportunity. War was renewed, a puppet king set up.
In the years of struggle that followed, two men stood out as leaders of their people: Sir William Douglas, the Knight of Liddesdale, known as the Flower of Chivalry, and Sir Alexander Ramsay of Dalwolsey.
Friends and comrades-in-arms, by their gallantry and daring, they did more than any others to save their country. Yet something was to happen between them that would cause one of the most dire and desperate happenings in Scotland's violent and dramatic history...
