But he was not always a hero - as he was not always a king. He grew towards both under the shadow of a still greater hero - William Wallace - in that terrible forcing-ground of heroism and treachery alike, the Wars of Independence which, from 1296 to 1314, hammered Scotland into the very dust until only the enduring idea of freedom remained in her. Edward Longshanks, King of England, was the Hammer of the Scots, a great man gone wrong, a magnificent soldier flawed by consuming hatred and lust for power. These two fought out their desperate, appalling duel, with Scotland as prize - should any of Scotland survive. Not only these. To John Comyn, Lord of Badenoch, head of the most powerful house in Scotland and nephew of the deposed and discredited King John Baliol, Bruce was as spark to tinder. Their friction blazed to flame that shocking day when blood soaked the high altar at Dumfries, and a new Bruce was born. *** Quantity Available: 1. Category: Fiction; Historical; ISBN: 034015098X.
